In addition to following the standards of the guitar industry, Belevski Guitars also creates many innovative designs.
The most durable frets in the world!!!* This idea was conceived in my workshop 30 years ago. It gave me the possibility to create the frets from the best materials (Duralumin). The montage of the frets requires special technological processes, which include cutting, grinding, polishing the frets’ edges, and finally montaging them on the fingerboard. The best frets in the world!!! Show/Hide photos!
*For 30 years no musician ever told me that the frets are wearing down.
More than 15 ideas for a nut!!! At first glance it seems as if everything about the nut is already invented, but I found ways to innovate. The new nut is made of special Swedish chrome-nickel-aluminium and is designed specially for 12-string and resonator guitars. It can be removed and changed at any time.
A few more models are designed for Fender guitars and give the ability to define a special angle for the strings. Show/Hide photos!
The next generation of resonator guitars? The first design of the Dopyera brothers is from 1929 – a tricone construction. The next is from 1931 – a spider construction. Today the modern resonator guitar requires aluminium sound,magnet pickup, piezo, drive and an option to control the tension of the resonating plates.
After 2 years of research, in 2012, the first prototype of my resonator guitar was given as a special gift to Johnny Winter for his birthday. Show/Hide photos!
New ideas for wooden bridges, tailpieces, and pickups!!! Every archtop custom guitar has unique tailpiece, pickguard (wooden, plastic, or a combination), and machine buttons. I have designed special combinations made of chrome-nickel steel, messing, wood, and abalone, which makes every tailpiece one of a kind. My philosophy about design (I am an architect) states that every detail must be functional and stylish.Show/Hide photos!
