    Everybody here should know that all of those burns from the rough carve will not be part of the finished guitar (they will be sanded off at some later point). That is some amazing wood for sure. This is going to be a rare and beautiful guitar. And perhaps the only Campellone Cameo ever with a built in pickup?

    Well, it is not like you don't already have some amazing Campy's to play in the meantime.

    Vinny has some of the most beautiful archtop guitars I've ever seen.

    Awesome!

    are you getting a “back through neck heel” design, or going more practical?

    are you going natural or honey burst or whatever Mark calls his shade?

    will it weigh a ton like a Citation (hehe) or be more like a Johnny Smith?

    Well Don hate to break the news to you but citations do not weigh a ton
    perhaps you care to share with the group what your Citation weighs

    I’m BigMike and I approve this post

    Back through heel and honey burst. I like a very thick stiff top.
    Mine will be the 1st with a humbucker. I’m not a floater guy.
    30 Campellone’s must be made 1st. Mark doesn’t give cuts in line.
    Not even to his JG forum PR guy.

    That backed up!? Wow, he has the demand to match his artistry.

    If I end up with a Campy, it'll likely have to be on the used market. I don't think I could wait that long, plus keep the money stashed safely away!

    I don't want to weigh it right now but will share with the group that it weighs noticeably more than my Legrands, which weigh noticeably more than my Guild-Benedetto. I never thought about it that much until Howard Paul mentioned to me when we were discussing a Manhattan, which I failed to pull the trigger on.

    In early October I sold three guitars
    a 2002 custom L5 acoustic
    an 18 inch Heritage Johnny Smith and my 2002 Citation
    frankly the Citation and the L5 were the same
    they seemed remarkably light

    well it's all relative, and I'm not complaining. For all I know the L5CES is heavier than the Legrand also. There would be a number of plausible reasons why, if so.

    The Gibson L5 I sold was a rare one off custom that was carved like an rarly 50s L5 acoustic and had a thinner top and a thinner back and it was light and really the difference in weight between the Citation and the L5 was not noticeable

    I like my archtops To be fully acoustic I’m not fond of set pick up guitars although I do have an 1939 L5P with a Charlie Christian and a P90 in it

    I wonder if the Citation specs varied over the years, beyond the obvious inlay material. In other words, did their weight ever vary across the years? Mine's a bit heavy. Maybe that's for durability or something, which seems like a decent idea.

    Boy are we off topic now. Back to a Happy Future NGD for Vinny!

    Carved back. Mark says carving quilt is like cement. Hard stuff.
    Sure is pretty though.

    looks like the average weight of a citation is 2436 lbs. i really hope the newer ones are lighter.

    just between us, i'm not always the biggest fan of quilted maple, but when it works, it really works. and i love this because it has the wiggles all across it. i love wiggles. i'm not sure what the treeological term is for that, but you know. excited to check back in two year's time.

    Sorry for the thread drift, but these two differ in weight by 270 g (0.6 lb). The Benedetto designed version is lighter, but it has a 13 mm (1/2") shallower body.

    Yes, it's a very light guitar, for being 17 inches that is.

    Back in October when I sold those three guitars I really had no trouble letting go of them because I have five Campellone Specials and four Unity archtops and I think they beat the pants off of L-5d and Citations

    Vinnie and I agree on one thing and that is that the Campellone guitars will someday be as cherished as a D’Acquisto or a D’Angelico
