    Stunning.

    Mark really likes the amber look on blondes. It's the same colour that's on my 2001.

    He has 3 types of blondes.
    Natural, antique natural, and dark antique natural.
    I really dig the dark antique natural.

    ...There's a few good stories there - for me in particular, that ' P-90 ' style non-cutaway, and the maroon ( ? ) with the finger style t/p.......Wonder how each customer chose those features.......

    Mark is pretty open to our quirky customer wants. Unlike a production guitar or even other private builders.
    As far as a total 1 off total off the the tracks build …..Steve Holst.
    Fit and finish though…MC.

    Man, please forgive my vulgarity but I've seen so many barges full of turds come floating down the river of my life this year, it somehow makes me happy to think that a craftsman, an artist unto himself, just one guy out there somewhere is periodically creating and floating these incredible things of beauty down that self-same river, and that there really are a few droplets of beauty being birthed in the world, if you're lucky enough to see them. Thanks for the post, Vinny. Glorious to see.

    Is that the one that looks almost orange? I agree, it is gorgeous.

    Interesting in that I like the really no color blond that has no tint at all. With the proper wood that to me is the nicest. I say that because my 18 inch Hollenbeck made in 1993 was done and Bill used a bit of tint to give in an amber type cast. It is very similar to the antique natural Mark makes. However now all these years later it is not orange but clearly has changed to a darker cast over the years. I don't mind it at all it is beautiful bit there is something about a pure blond no tint that hits me. As someone who repairs and can do finish work by far the easiest finish is no tint blond. Then you don't have to worry about getting anything wrong except getting the proper number of coats on the guitar and buffing it out to a nice shine.

    I have said this over and over but finishing a guitar especially in nitro, is an art in and of itself. One can make a tremendously sounding and performing arctop or any guitar for that matter. If finish does not look super professional and great, then it will suffer in the end to the market. Players still look with their eyes and I am no different. Mark Campellone has the finish process down as an art and refined to the best around. Within this he makes a superb sound guitar with playability. Every day I pick up and play my Campy 18 deluxe and say......well I could find a better guitar.....but I won't. As Mark's level of workmanship it is just whatever you happen to like, nothing better just different.

    Actually Mark’s personal favorite finish he offers is his bright
    cherry sunburst like the 1960’s Gibson Barney Kessel model.

    I ordered that 3 by 16 inch non-cutaway w/ the P-90 in antique burst.
    I play rhythm 4/4 mostly old world jazz, dixie/swing/gypsy jazz/western swing.
    I solo a bit and do not require the upper register. Fulfilled enough using all the frets I got, seems to be enough for my liking..
    Set up with D’Addario 11 rounds, a Dunlop tortex 1.14 pick and a Vintage 47 octal tube amplifier I really get the sound I am looking for. The P-90 is a Lollar 50’s underwound pu and is not quick to break up. It is clean and articulate for note separation with just the right amount of depth for my style of playing..
    There are a lot of different type of jazz musicians, and instruments that compliment a particular player & style.
    The genre is extensive.
    I know that my particular set up and style of playing is certainly not for everyone. More so a very few stuck in a time warp lol..
    Mark Campellone did an excellent job and I am so blessed to own such a fine instrument!!
