Catalina by Rotem Sivan

Catalina by RS

Custom built for Rotem Sivan


The guitar was custom made in collaboration with Rotem Sivan.


It is developed based on our Catalina model and has been customized to accommodate his unique playing style and techniques. The semi-hollow full block and flat back construction reduces feedback, allowing the guitar to handle all effects and overdrive. It has 25 frets and a deeper cutaway than usual, allowing for easy access to higher notes.


For the percussion playing, there are five contact piezo pickups under the top plate and the back. In addition to the standard magnetic pickups, there is an acoustic and midi system on board, so the sound options are virtually limitless. The tension provided by the 25.4′ scale is just enough to handle all string gauges.


Guitar is handmade from the finest wood, naturally dried for over 30 years.
