    I've been working with Eiichi Yamamoto and want to announce a new model based on their exrubato. It's the jack zucker standard. It's basically the seventy seven take on a 335. The customization for my preferences are pretty simple.


    1. Weight - I wanted a super light weight instrument because of my back issues so the instrument needed to weigh as close to 6.5lbs as possible. I basically wanted 339 weight in a 335 body. My prototype weighs 6.6lbs
    2. Neck Taper - I wanted a slimmer taper neck than the standard which I would consider a fat-back. The neck on my model feels a bit like the gibson 30/60 neck. Super comfortable and fat enough for great tone but not a boat neck.
    3. Balanced - I always felt that the 339 was just at the edge of being neck heavy. Some were worse than others. This guitar had to be perfectly balanced so that it did not neck dive. At 6.6lbs, it *IS* perfectly balanced.


    I am battling a heavy-duty virus so it'll be a few days before I get some demos up but after playing the guitar for a few days, I'm extremely happy. Great jazz, blues, rock and fusion tones. Easily the best 335 guitar I've ever owned.

    Not sure what the price will be yet. Contact Eiichi eastmongo@gmail.com
    for more information.

    More detail in a few days when I'm feeling better.

    Ah, but that is one beautiful guitar. Just the colors I was looking for when I had money and was trying to get this style of guitar.

    You have obviously been very busy - Congtatulations of having a signature guitar and get over that virus so you can enjoy it.

    Nice! I've had a few Seventy Sevens and they were fantastic instruments, but I always wished they were available with a slightly less hefty neck.

    Beautiful instrument!

    I am curious about center block too! How come the guitar is so light? What's the block made of? Is it full length? Or does is stop after the stop tailpiece?

    The block is full length. I asked them if it was hollowed out like gibson does with their weight relieved les pauls and they said no because that would effect the structural integrity. They said it was all done by hand selecting lighter woods - I presume for the neck and the block.

    This is interesting, I am pretty sure the Exrubato Custom has holes in the center block to connect the chambers. Mine has a maple center block.

    Congratulations, well deserved, earned note by note. Like others I’ll be watching for your playtime demo.

    Re Seventy Seven, I’m very happy with my Albatross bought here last year.
