Quarzo Standard

Built from the finest tonewoods and following the construction methods of the golden years of the electric guitar, the Morifone Quarzo has a tone reminiscing of the late ’50s vintage instruments and offers the playability of modern guitars. A perfect blend of Origin and Originality, the Quarzo is our Flagship instrument, and is so polyvalent that it can turn pretty much any musical genre, from Classic to Hard Rock to Metal, Blues, Pop, Jazz, etc. into a masterpiece.
