DELTA, B.C., January 25, 2011 – Graph Tech Guitar Labs, the world’s largest guitar nut and saddle manufacturer is excited to announce that DBZ Guitars exclusively uses TUSQ nuts and saddles on their entire line of acoustic guitars.
“DBZ Guitars are really pushing the envelope on style and performance in the guitar market. We are excited to see TUSQ nuts and saddles come as original equipment on their Tuscan, Montini and Verona acoustic guitars. It shows Dean Zelinsky’s commitment to quality and tone down to the finest details,” says Dave Dunwoodie, President, Graph Tech Guitar Labs.
TUSQ nuts and saddles have rich tone and sustain, without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, disrupting consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ transfers the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body, improving overall tonal
This enhanced vibration transfer is precisely what Dean B. Zelinsky, CEO of DBZ Guitars, was seeking. With over 35 years designing and building cutting-edge guitars that never sacrifice quality and tone, Zelinsky now specifies TUSQ nuts and saddles exclusively on the entire DBZ line of acoustic guitars.
“Graph Tech has been a great company to work with from an OEM perspective. Their customer service is top-notch, and the people we work with are fantastic business partners,” says Dean Zelinsky, Master Guitar Builder, DBZ Guitars.
You can find TUSQ on all DBZ acoustic guitars, as well as their Premier Series electric guitars.
