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 of his peers 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 exceptionaly intense AAAA tiger flame maple back and sides, with a hand-graduated tap-tuned Sitka spruce top, and rare birdseye maple neck.

With it's finely carved, X-braced braced soundboard, 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 a fine gentle D profile, easy in the hand, with a fresh high-precision setup over a fingerboard of solid black ebony. In gleaming condition, the guitar is free of pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear, and appears virtually unplayed.

The guitar is amplified with a Kent Armstrong Handwound JS floating pickup, an industry standard for peerless warmth and fidelity. A final touch is the original art-deco styled tailpiece, a Campellone original. Finally, we salute Mark on his commitment to keeping his instruments affordable to the working player. We can think of few other makers today who deliver so much quality so reasonably, or attractively. Not surprisingly, value like this has generated quite a backlog.

Skip the wait list, and snag this handsome instrument while you can. One only: call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings. The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 5/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original deluxe arched black plush lined hardshell case
