Joe’s guitars have heart. They’re woody, and rich with character. And they have a singularly unique sound that you hear, even when playing the simplest notes. They’re just so alive. They are not generic. They’re Yanuziellos. Hearing one, you can understand why Bill Frisell and Kevin Breit (Norah Jones’ guitarist) play them.

CRAIG'S POV

The Yanuziello Electric--that’s the name. Joe makes one style of electric guitar, and this is it. And it is simply a fantastic electric guitar. Everyone I know who owns one adores it, and considers it a desert island guitar.

There are a number of reasons why. Joe’s a master luthier - and has concentrated most of his work on acoustic guitars. When he decided to make an electric guitar, he decided to take, as DNA, a guitar that few builders had considered an idea worth taking to its absolute perfection. Basically his guitar is based on the hollow body "Stratotone," an early, very inexpensive guitar that had a very unique, earthy quality. It had its own sound - not Fender, not Gibson. Unique. But he just used that as a pattern. What he built was a master’s version of that design’s DNA--what it would be like if you made that guitar as good as it possibly could be. That’s what he’s done. The guitars are gloriously handcrafted. He uses the absolute finest materials available. Flamed or curly maple. Honduran mahogany. Brazilian rosewood fingerboards. He hand makes his tailpieces and bridges. You can see Joe’s mastery at work simply by looking at how the headstock melds into the beautifully medium C shaped neck. A work of art. Even the way he attaches the neck to the body is spectacularly machined and executed.

Joe’s guitars have heart. They’re woody, and rich with character. And they have a singularly unique sound that you hear, even when playing the simplest notes. They’re just so alive. They are not generic. They’re Yanuziellos. Hearing one, you can understand why Bill Frisell and Kevin Breit (Norah Jones’ guitarist) play them. I’d like to believe that if John Lennon were alive today, this would be one the tools he’d use. Playing a single chord on a Yanuziello fills a lot of space, beautifully.

This brand new Deluxe Mahogany/Bigsby model is really a wonder of masterful workmanship. A beautiful double-bound body with a very unique piece of premium Brazilian rosewood selected for the fingerboard. Note that Yanuziello's radical Bigsby B-3 modifications include a drilled through string shaft for easy string changes, a re-contoured vibrato arm for a slimmer appearance, and a re-contoured vibrato arm hinge bracket to allow the arm to rotate 360 degrees. The whole Bigsby assembly is flush mounted into the body for a lower profile. Cool.

This is just a stunning guitar. I love it. And I believe you will, too. In fact, I’m sure of it. Yanuziellos are that great.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT YANUZIELLO INSTRUMENTS
It certainly doesn't take a genius to realize that guitar builder Joseph Yanuziello is the real deal. What's "the real deal" you say? When it comes to luthiers, it means someone who has built a meaningful full-time career over a long period of time, developed the craft/art/voodoo of instrument building to the highest level, carved out their own niche in an overcrowded sea of brand names, you know, the real deal! There is something about a Yanuziello that is both plain-and-simple and somehow luxurious at the same time. In fact, Yanuziello's background in design and wood/metal fabrication has served him well in producing what he would describe as "modern vintage instruments." His interest in many musical genres is reflected in the different electric and acoustic instruments he produces. "The challenge is to keep it fresh and new and a continuous learning experience...the players have a lot to do with this." - JY
