Combine the Galaxie 4's cool space-age pickguard and headstock—which are constructed from a rare stock of limited ’60s plastics—with its 4-pickup/ 4-on-off rocker switch lay-out, pearly tuning pegs, gold reflector knobs, binding, block inlay, and whammy bar, and you've got an instrument that pulls off an authentic ’60s look while still being and an original design and not a reissue. The Galaxie 4 Deluxe may look like a pawnshop prize but high quality parts and modern design ideas were incorporated to make a high-end reliable instrument. All DiPinto Guitars are designed and personally ok'd by Luthier Chris DiPinto, and are professionally set up in Fishtown, Philadelphia.
