Rubato Guitars, a custom guitar manufacturer based in Johannesburge, South Africa, launches their first guitar model, the Rubato Lassie.
Behind the brand are two father-and-son engineers, Roger and Oliver Lambson.
Few innovations of their own have to be made to develop a world-class, well-crafted, well-designed modern electric guitar. All of these, to give them the utmost playing experience that suit them best.
Thus, the Rubato Lassie
The result is the Rubato Lassie – a stunning, single carbon-fibre monocoque electric guitar. The structure itself gives the guitar a strong and rigid feel, with “virtually no bend” in the neck, and its conductive properties effectively eliminates any unwanted noise. A common feature in most carbon fiber guitars (which is really GOOD IMO), it also is highly-resistant to temperature changes and humidity, so I believe the right term for this, as Rubato says, “there’s no danger of warping.”
For an electric guitar, it’s also a very light one – weighing at only 2.5kgs (5.5lbs.).
“For this first model – the Rubato Lassie – we’ve deliberately limited ourselves to a few key features that can make the biggest difference to the music we produce and have worked on getting them absolutely right,” Lambson says.
“It’s not intended to replace the much-loved guitars we’ve spent a lifetime playing but it’s a very special addition to our collection … and we hope the global guitar fraternity will soon feel the same way.”
