Giulietta Jazzett

The Giulietta Jazz was my nod to jazz boxes of the golden age, but with a bit of a twist.

 

The Giulietta is a short scale small guitar with a big sound. I have made several, but one that has escaped me for so long was this ebony colored model that I have named The Jazzett.

 

In the spring of 2020, I received a call from Paul.  He was very curious about the Giulietta composition. I informed him the run on this model was nearing end.  This was because the vintage wood supply that its based on was almost gone.  However, after he proposed a color concept for a built, I simply replied, “ l gotta build it! ”  Here is the result.  It's, the last of the vintage wood.  It features one of my newly designed aluminum bridges with brass saddles and wooden base,  a freshly designed overwound pickup.  Also I created a milled aluminum and acrylic tailpiece as well.  Top this all off with this 1940s deco elegant ebony water base finish and Wow!!
