Overview

From the classic archtop curves of the body, to the vintage Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, to the distinctive "rivets" front and back, there is simply no other guitar like it. Normandy Guitars are quality made one at a time and are built to stand the test of time from one gig to the next.

Army Green-this is another finish that translates well to the Normandy aesthetic. When we were thinking of what finishes we would want (in addition to chrome) we tried to think of other products out in the world that are made of hard core metal with big rivets¦well as you can see this flat army green finish looks just like the old school army helmets and other gear from back in the 30's and 40's.

The powdecoated finishes on Normandy guitars are applied using a special "baked-on" finish that is electrostatically bonded to the guitar bodies. The resulting finish is extremely durable and far superior to the standard paint, stain, or varnish typically found on guitars.

The Normandy maple-on-maple and rosewood-on-maple necks are shaped close to what you would find on an old-school jazz guitar-not too fat¦ not too thin. The resonant, chrome-finished, aircraft-grade aluminum body produces smooth, warm tones that ring true and long. Sustain is increased significantly when compared to that of a conventional wooden guitar body. Normandy "old school" humbuckers with Alnico V magnets are overwound to 12K ohms for higher output, powerful midrange, and driving tone.

This is a deceivingly solid piece of equipment. You may be able to snap the neck, but the body will stand up to the most aggressive punk-inspired outbursts. The Normandy weighs 8.6 lb., which is roughly the same (or less) than most other electric guitars, maintains perfect balance when on a strap, and is so accommodating that you may just be able to go at it all night.

The sound, the look, the feel, the durability, and all of extra care taken to perfect this one-of-a-kind guitar, combined with state-of-the-art manufacturing processes equal a guitar that you would expect to cost thousands more than it does. Custom boutique styling and quality that every player can afford¦ that's the best thing of all.
