    Vinny! Congrats! She's a stunner. I love natural blondes. That quilt/flame on the back and sides is so three-dimensional and beautiful. Birdseye neck. Wow, nice woods throughout. Simply elegant from head to toe. Lucky man. How does it sound?

    Great photos of an incredible-looking instrument.

    It is a little warmer sounding than my Special. Very angelic sounding. I guess from the angel wings on the back. If I had proper recording equipment I would post Over the Rainbow/If I only had a Brain. Taught to me by my buddy Tuck. It is the best song I do. I won't post a iPhone recording. It will sound plinky and not do justice. When I retire I will get into recording vids like Joe. I don't know how Mark does it but spot on intonation on both my Campellone's with a wood saddle. Every string. Every fret. Can't wait to see the completed D'Aquisto restoration. 007 (silverfoxx) next up to bat. Thanks Mark ! It's a real whooper.

    Glad to see you're pleased with the guitar, Vinny - not surprised to hear that it's a little more mellow sounding than your Special - the quilted maple is a little softer than the flame maple on your Special - and the spruce top on the V1K came from a different source than the top on your Special, and that might be a little softer, too - as for the intonation being 'spot on', that's probably just luck (lol) - since there's no individual string adjustment, you can't really go for perfection when cutting the compensation into the saddle - I tend to exaggerate the compensation a bit because, to my ear at least, being a little flat is less irritating than being a little sharp.

    I really enjoyed watching this guitar come together in your build thread. Thanks for sharing that and thanks for sharing these photos. Beautiful from every angle.

    Time on your hands, a quiet room, a beautiful new guitar in your lap. Not much can beat that.

    Enjoy.

    ... I gotta get me one of those...

    I don't deserve it. My playing on that guitar is like an ugly guy dating a beauty queen... but I'm' pricing out what I could sell....

    I have such respect and admiration for Mark Campellone. It is like many years ago and how I felt about Jimmy D’Aquisto.
    Someday I must fly to Rhode Island to give him a great big hug.
    Mark is very humble and is uncomfortable with praise but.....

    THANK YOU MARK !!!

    Now plan C. Sell a couple Gibby’s and get a Cameo.

    Though these guitars are basically the same, their voices are very different which I am very pleased with. I can't say which I like better but they both sound wonderful. The V1K is softer and warmer and acoustically the Special is louder. If I had to pick one I could not but the V1K does have a special place in my heart as it isn't a standard model but a collaboration between me and Mark. These 2 Campellone's do show what a huge difference in sound different woods make. Both wonderful tones but very different.I am truly blessed. I thank the good Lord everyday....and you too Mark.

    You are definitely blessed and deserving-of such fine instruments . Over the years I’ve enjoyed my guitar building journeys immensely. The relationships and experience will resonate with you the rest of your life.

    All my guitars sound different - and it’s that variety which can satisfy our different moods and give us perspective and experience. We will never stop searching for the sound.

    The warmth you speak of is what I admire about a great Archtop. May this guitar bring you many hours/ years of enjoyment.

    Your east coast bud.

    Vinny, since everything remains the same, do you notice the acoustic difference also in the amplified tone?

    Yes. Mark told me that quilted maple has a softer more mellow tone. He was correct. The V1K sounds closer to a modern L5 were the Special like a 60's L5. Can't say which one I like better.The V1K means more to me on a personal level. I will die with that one. I would say the V1K is more creamy and the Special is more focused amplified. A better evaluation will be in 6 months. Right now the V1K came with Chromes and I have TI's on the Special. I remember after 6 months the Special really came alive. The V1K is still stinking nitro (new car smell). :-) V

    Am I reading this correctly ? ..... Chromes ??...Chromes !!! whatever next ?, you will be ostracised by the brotherhood unless TI's
    are on that Campellone before sundown, I'm going to drink a large Isle of Jura whisky and sit in a dark room. Dare I ask if you
    are contemplating asking Mark to build a "Flying V " style guitar for your Birthday in 23 days time? I suspect that Thomas Infeld
    will be distraught at the defection to another String maker.

    I will make sure TI's are on your Deluxe when it ships out. Mark didn't have any TI's in stock so I just told him to slap a set a Chromes on it. Put away that whiskey jug. TI's by sundown. Don't want your laser accuracy marksmanship diminished Sir 007. Neither does the Queen.

    Chromes are not that bad. I got them on the SF. I didn’t want to waste a good set of strings.
    Although one issue..
    When I tune to a Standard tuning the intonation is spot on, up and down the neck. But when I drop D tune, I have to make the low D “flat” in order for the octaves from 3rd fret on up to match. My 165 doesn’t have this issue and I never had this problem with other guitars or TI strings. Weird.

    chromes are completely different from thoms jazz swings...

    chromes have hex core..thoms round---big difference!

    chromes are stainless steel wrap...thomastiks are pure nickel-huge difference

    chromes are flats for people that really don't like or know flats...very roundwound-ish...they are initially bright (but fade quickly) and have some grit to the wrap

    thomastiks are vintage mellow and stay that way..they are thin inner core and therefore low tension/stiff feeling...their double wrap of pure nickel is also softer and smoother on the fingertips

    this is not conjecture...its design!!

    cheers

    TI's and Gibson (or Campellone )....the perfect combo. Oh and a Henriksen too.

    No doubt N. TI’s are the only string I’d buy but when a brand set of strings show up on a new guitar that I buy, well, I can’t just throw em out.. once Chromes break in, they are actually not too bad.
    But there is a fresh set of 13’s waiting to be deployed. The problem is, I don’t have any plain Elixir E&b in 13 and 17 to use with the other 4 TI’s.

    Plain steel high E's and B's are all pretty much the same regardless of manufacturer.

    My guitar made the Campellone hall of fame. Check out the great pics Mark took on the last page of his gallery. Also check out the black face beauty. That black face is really appealing.
    Mark had knee surgery Monday. Prayers for fast healing so he can get back to the chisel.
