PLANT A TREE!
 

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

- Chinese proverb

At Magneto® guitars we are fully aware that our activities have an impact on our planet. Despite the fact that a lot of our work is done by hand, there is no way that we can keep our work a 100% clean (or carbon neutral) for now. However, we always keep a true respect for the world that surrounds us and especially for its wonderful nature.

Hence we have taken the decision that as of September 2020, we will plant a tree for every guitar that we are building. Why? Well because trees are vital; they give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the world's wildlife, not to mention that we are using woods to build our guitars.

In this vain we have decided to collaborate with the enterprise Reforest'Action in order to make sure that these trees will indeed be planted in the areas which have the most urgent needs.

 U-One Series: the new Magneto guitar line!

 
U One Headstock Blue1

In the past 10 years we have been very fortunate to supply guitars to many recording and touring musicians. We have also received many requests from musicians that we were not able to fulfil at the time; a lot of people have asked us if we couldn't make a guitar that would be more affordable. It took quite some time to elaborate the right product and production scheme.

Then in 2017 we have met a couple of old friends who have offered us to help in the production of a new line of guitars. After many months of development work, an alliance was made in 2018 to produce the all new Magneto® U-One series. We have designed new models and created a few different versions of our Sonnet model that would accomodate the budget minded players. We have not forgotten about our original idea which is to maintain a quality level that would enable these instruments to be played on stage by professionals.

Our aim is to use our knowledge and expertise to produce a more affordable instrument. Just like our Magneto® Guitars, the U-One instruments will be built with a slightly different balance in weight and volume hence delivering a more complexe and solid midrange focussed tone.
