Delfinen is a 24" scale offset guitar, inspired by the 60s style of surf guitar but with a modern feel to it. I wanted to build a guitar that would stand out from the crowd visually, whilst being inspiring to play physically.

This guitar is an evolution of the corvette build: where that was designed to be metal inspired, Delfinen is a more refined take on that short-scale offset vibe. Despite the surf inspiration, the two House of Tone really give this guitar a great rock voice.
