Yep, this is the one you’ve been waiting for. Although pre-owned, this stunning 17″ custom-built instrument is “as new,” unmarked, unplayed, and unbelievable!
This wonderfully warm and robust instrument has a 3 3/8 body depth, Buscarino Kent Armstrong pickup, European Cello woods throughout (a $1200 upgrade). Rich Honey Blonde Finish, Block Inlays with ebony stripes, Bound Pickguard and Intonated Saddle. Includes original hard shell case with deep red plush interior. John Buscarino confirms that the current value of this instrument is $11,400, with a long wait.
He recently sent me this email:
“I can tell you that this is one of the best ones I have built so far. Everything just went right on this one both aesthetically and tonally…”
Built from European Cello Woods – an upgraded option. The European Wood for a Buscarino guitar usually comes from Germany. It is $1,200.00 extra and there are a few different reasons why The European Wood costs more:
First, it is aged a lot longer than the American Woods, and the more the wood is aged the better it is for instrument wood tonally and structurally (and of course the more it’s aged the more it costs). The second reason is it has less of the grain that runs opposite the Flame which gives it a much cleaner look than the American Woods; lastly it is a much whiter wood and gives a very pristine quality to the overall appearance of the instrument.
