    Pasquale Grasso is at Mezzrow tonight - just setting up. Looks like he is using a Dearmond FHC on "?" not sure what the guitar is ! Not a big fan but I may stick around and hear what the FHC sounds like

    He's playing mostly Trenier.

    Hi Will,

    I'm several hours late to this. Pasquale's new guitar is another Trenier - a Jazz Special model (16", laminate) completed last month.
    Below are some photos from luthier Bryant Trenier showing the guitar as completed. I also attach a photo from friend and NYC luthier Pablo Valle, showing that he had replaced the Dearmond pickup with a floating humbucker by Pete Biltoft/Vintage Vibe.

    Interesting info!! - he was definitely using that Dearmond on the guitar he was playing. Perhaps he moved it from a main to a backup? or I was time travelling and watching a Mezzrow live in the past or Pasquale has even more superpowers than just his playing!!! I was I had made a screencap now! I don't think the setup had that cool looking bracket support on the bottom but had a wire going from the pickup into the treble side f-hole . I remember thinking hey! that looks diy!! kinda Chris Floryesque but with a nicer suit

    Wow, that is gorgeous! And, the beauty of the instrument is only eclipsed by the stunning playing of Mr. Grasso.
