It was 2015 when I first had the idea that is now Essoldo Guitars. I’d been building guitars from parts on and off for years and decided it was time to design my own.
After a few concept designs and prototype builds, the Atom was conceived. Next was the Rocket. This shape was more similar to the original concept designs but with a few tweaks. Two more shapes followed and completed what I now affectionately call the Nuclear Guitar Collection.
My main inspiration for the designs came from guitars and styling of the late 1950’s. I like to think I’ve kept true to this while also creating something unique.
This little gem was commissioned by a bass playing friend that wanted an Atom shape made into a bass and nicknamed the “Petal”.
40mm thick solid body in seafoam green complete with matching headstock. All black hardware and pickguard. Amber finish maple neck with a fretless rosewood board. Humbucking bass pickup with single volume control.
