“The idea came to Lopez back in 2003 when, while playing in front of a Bogota country club, he witnessed a car bomb explode. In the ensuing confusion, he noticed how the army guards all carried their rifles in a manner that resembled the way he carried his guitar and out of that explosion came the first escopetarra—a Winchester rifle/Fender Stratocaster hybrid.
“The instruments are called escopetarras, a portmanteau of the Spanish escopeta meaning “rifle” and guitarra meaning, well, guitar.”
But these DiResta guitars are something else.
