Notes: It is expected that a first-class luthier will excel at the fundamentals of the craft: joinery, voicing, fit and finish. But Mark Campellone is that rarest of builders who succeeds where so many fall short, in the crucial dimension of design. Simply put, all of Mark's instruments are beautiful, as pleasing to behold as they are to play. Simple, tasteful, with understated elegance, Campellone guitars draw from the heart of traditional styling, updated with bold, modern flair.

Handmade at his Rhode Island workshop, the Campellone Deluxe is a full depth Venetian cutaway guitar in the classic L-5 tradition, carved of bookmatched tiger flame maple, with a hand-graduated tap-tuned Sitka spruce top. The back shows impeccably bookmatched tiger flame figure, and the neck is crisscrossed with rollers of barber-pole flame. With it's finely carved, tap tuned, parallel-braced braced top, the Campellone Deluxe is a true acoustic guitar, rich and warm with depth, focus, and an even response along the entire scale.

The neck profile has an gentle, slightly flattened D profile, with fine medium frets over a fingerboard of solid black ebony, with smooth low action over a fresh high-precision setup. The guitar is amplified with a Kent Armstrong PAF humbucking pickup, with a hand-bound tortoise pickguard. A final touch is the original art-deco styled tailpiece, crafted of solid ebony mounted on a gold retainer.

This guitar has all original finish and hardware, and has been maintained in showroom condition, without pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear. With smooth classic tone at a true player's price, we're delighted to be able to offer this best buy in a true US made luthier-built archtop. One only: call now.
