This guitar is number 30, Sean has now constructed 43 of these beautiful instruments.
Sean Lombardozzi discovered a passion for woodworking at a young age. During his senior year of high school, he built his first guitar. Sean later discovered that was a defining moment in his life. After graduating, Sean spent the next four years completing a private apprenticeship. He studied under Carl Barney, who has built guitars since 1968. Given Carl’s level of expertise, Sean was fortunate enough to learn the trade in the truly traditional fashion: by studying intensely under an advanced luthier. While many opt to learn in a university classroom, Sean credits an accumulation of trade secrets and much of his forward thinking to his traditional training.
Sean’s first introduction to music was through his father, professional musician, Tony Lombardozzi. Sean’s father gave him access to the professional guitar world at a very early age. Because of this, Sean was able to handle and study high-end guitars throughout his entire life, even before he decided to pursue it as a career. Sean’s background in music generates much of his excitement to create his own unique designs. However, Sean’s designs are also fueled by a passion for innovation that parallels his love to build. He thoroughly enjoys re-engineering age-old techniques to produce stronger, better sounding, and more beautiful instruments.
Sean takes great pride in his work, and he believes that there are few limits for anyone who truly loves their profession.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
