Lipe Guitars Soldato

Custom Hand-Made electric guitar!

Make’n Music is happy to have this used Lipe Guitars Soldato for sale at a great price! It was just brought in on consignment by one of our regular collectors. It is in excellent condition without any significant issues, dings, dents or wear. Maybe a hint of superficial cosmetic wear like pick marks or something, but you’d really have to break out the microscope to see that. It was never gigged. Collector owned and cared for only. Like all our used / vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get. Imcredibly fun to play! Light, Loud and Lively! 6.4lbs

This particular Lipe Guitar is a Soldato model. Hand made by Master Luthier Mike Lipe in California. It features a Mahogany body with Spruce top (must be chambered as it is very, very light). The tone is open and airy. The neck is incredibly comfortable with a nice Soft “V” profile. It’s Quartersawn Maple with a figured Maple fingerboard. The scale is traditional 25.5” and the radius is 12”. Nice beefy frets and a Tilt back headstock make it just a joy to play. The perfect blend of classic Fender and classic Gibson along with the quality of a hand-made, boutique, custom electric guitar. Very nice indeed.

The Soldato represents the classic single cut-away body style which is known for its fuller, bigger tone and its characteristic sonic properties. In Italian, Soldato means "soldier" and that's exactly what this guitar is--a trustworthy, reliable instrument for any professional musician performing either inside the studio or on the stage. This guitar has what it takes to bring your performances alive.

Lipe Guitars are high end boutique guitars that are hand made one at a time by Mike Lipe himself. Mike's guitars are recognized by their stunning appearance, musical tone, and effortless playability. Each guitar's wood is selected based on moisture content, stability, and acoustic properties personally selected by Mike. The finest materials and highest standards of craftsmanship are used to bring you the best instrument imaginable.

These guitars are designed to last a lifetime and inspire the best of the player's creativity. In today's digital age, CNC operated machines have taken over, replacing the art form of guitar-building with a mass production guitar cloning process. Lipe guitars are one of the last representatives of a dying breed proudly caring the flag of genuine old school craftsmanship where guitars have individual soul and personality that can't be duplicated exactly the same.

Mike Lipe’s mastery of the art of guitar building spans over 35 years. While serving as Master Luthier for Ibanez, Starfield, and Guitar Doctor, his talents were dedicated to serving professional artist such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, and many others. Since 2000, Lipe Guitars has been serving both professionals and individuals as a high end boutique guitar builder.

There is nothing more wonderful than a guitar that is hand-built, by a Master.
