What We Think

Incredibly satisfying to play. When I hear Jazz guitar in my head, this is the tone that comes to mind. A woody, direct and smooth tone. The kind of tone that could slip brilliantly into a mix, or stand confidently on its own. The perfect combination of magnetic pickup and acoustic dimension. It truly exists at the crossroads between acoustic and electric. I could play it all day long. I could look at it all day long, too. The maple on this thing is some of the most beautifully flamed and intricate we've seen. The spruce is top notch and perfectly graduated for maximum projection. I also really dig the tailpiece. Very classy and original design. I had a Campellone standard in used at one point and when Mark approached about carrying his guitars, there was no hesitation on my part. It's an honor.
