Come down to The Music Spot to experience the new standard in Australian made guitars.

Meet Aaron Fenech, Master Builder of Fenech Guitars.

Each Fenech guitar is lovingly crafted by hand. This personal connection to the instrument ensures not only the best woods are used, but the right woods are used. 

This hands on method allows for each piece of timber to be tone tested and matched to the other timbers used in the construction of your new Fenech. Tone testing and matching timbers is a timely process, but is absoutely essential to having a guitar with strong projection, beautiful tone, sustain and character. This process is something that the Fenech team won't compromise on, and this adds to the list of why these guitars sound and feel the way they do.  

 

So which model is right for you? 

Lets dive into the Fenech range and explore all the options available for your next guitar.

The VT Professional (VT-Pro) Rosewood Series is the fourth tier in our range and features premium East Indian Rosewood with a uniquely modified aesthetic and a familiar bold voice.
Indian Rosewood is often considered the king of tone woods. It has a strong reputation for being one of the very best back and side materials used for guitar making throughout history. Its tonal profile often extends from clear trebles all the way through to bold basses with a slightly scooped mid-range.

It’s a reliable tone wood with a reliable sound and it is steeped in history given you can fingerpick it, strum it and flat pick it.
Every aspect of handcrafting this series is easily identifiable from the use of premium AAA East Indian Rosewood and AAA quality soundboard material, which is purposely voiced to enable the player the opportunity to experience a broader tonal range.

It is these aspects mixed with some unique appointments only found in high quality boutique handmade guitars that set this series apart. 
It’s the guitar most players have always wanted, and for good reason! It is a standout guitar at any gig, on any stage, or in any studio. It’s a professional instrument for the serious musician that can be played by anyone anywhere.
