Welcome to Marlique world. Skilled, talented hands work with lots of love to present Marlique
to you.



 

WOOD SELECTION AND BODY SHAPING
Once it arrived to the factory, wood is individually selected. Density, color, weight and tonal character are the main aspect to be inspected. Wood doesn’t meet the criteria will be returned to the supplier. Not easy to do, simpler to use it for a working bench or cupboard….

Wood is carefully matched and glued together to form basic body blanks. Thickness sanded to a uniform shape. Checked several times to avoid any flaws.

Curly maple veneer is applied as body tops. 28” bandsaw is used for rough cutting the shape. Finalized later with a router.

Basic coloring prior to final shape is a unique working methode of Marlique. Different with typical working methods. You will notice the difference later...

Plastic bindings are installed to the colored and base coated bodies using acrylic cement glue. Rubber bands hold them overnight. The binding and wood seam is perfect and clean. No need to worry about excess glue... now you get the difference...

Next step is cavity routing for pickups, neck, electronics, etc...

MAKING THE NECK
Neck blanks are made of 3 pieces wood, arranged and glued together. Wood grain are aligned each other to counteract the wood’s tension. Nyatoh veneers are inserted to give the striking appearance.

Basic neck’s profile are shapped with a router. Final shape are done with HANDS.

Last job is fret dressing and nut installing.

NECK & BODY ASSEMBLING
Set neck with 4 inforcement screws and glued in Standard and Deluxe models.

FINISHING
Marlique is protected with Polyurethane laqcuer, sprayed in stages..

For the solid color models,binding scrapping is done after the final coloring, using a special knive. The result is a perfect binding and body sharp joint line. Only skilled and steady hands can do this job. Every people has their own unique way. Some people like to do it by pushing away , some people like to pull it backwards..

Polyurethane is sprayed in 5 stages, 5 spray in each stage using wet on wet spraying methode. Leveling and sanding is done between stages.

Some are handpainted....

BUFFING
Micro wet sanding and buffing to produce a perfect finish on your guitar is done not less than 2 hours !

Mirror gloss finish !!!

FRET DRESSING
The secret of the perfect playability is in this proses. Each neck is made one by one. All frets are dressed and polished and individually inspected to ensure perfect playability.

SETTING
A skilled tech finally installed the hardwares. All the bridge, pickups, elektronics and any other hardwares are installed by 1 tech. It will take longer but it gives personal touch to every each guitar.

Ridho Hafiedz himself do the final inspection and bench test every guitars before it leaves the factory.
