BABICZ, JEFF GUITARS
Electric guitars previously produced in Indonesia and are now produced in China and Newburgh, NY between 2006 and 2010 (acoustic guitars were introduced in 2003). Distributed and sold direct by Jeff Babicz Guitars. Previously distributed by HSS (a division of Hohner, Inc.) in Glen Allen, VA.
Jeff Babicz used three patented technologies to make his acoustic guitar different than others. These include the Lateral Compression Soundboard, the Continually Adjustable Neck, and the Torque Reducing Split Bridge. A Babicz guitar looks different because the strings are physically attached to the soundboard near the edge of the body which enhances tone. The neck can be adjusted by a provided key without de-tuning the guitar. The bridge can also be adjusted for intonation and little torque is forced on it which keeps the soundboard stable.
Babicz produces the Identity series, which are now made in China on a production line. He also makes custom handmade models in his Babicz Signature Series Ltd. line which are produced in New York. In late 2004, Babicz signed a deal with Hohner/HSS to exclusively distribute his guitars. In 2006, Babicz introduced his first electric model, the Octane. Babicz has simplified his line and only offers two acoustic models: the Dreadnought Cutaway and the Spider. Babicz uses KMC Music as their importer since 2010. The re-designed Super Jumbo acoustic and Octane electric guitars were released late 2011. For more information, visit Babicz's website or contact him directly.
