9.9 of 10 (actually, I should call it 9.95 of 10 - it has just a few of the most minute pick scratches)
Anyone who has ever played a Marchione guitar knows that they are at the pinnacle of sound and playabilty.
This is a Carved Top guitar for the discerning musician who wants everything done right. If you are sick and tired of factory guitars with mediocre Maple on questionable Mahogany with boorish machine carving, this is the guitar for you.
Gorgeous, light weight, fast and tonally responsive – step up to the plate and knock it out of the park with a Marchione Carved Top.
When Stephen first opened his studio on 20th street in Manhattan in 1993 he made a few blonde CTs with black hardware and those old decals. He recently discovered a handful of the old decals and started thinking about doing a Marchione 1993 Vintage Re-Issue. The carving pattern on this top and the beautiful wood really reminded him of that time and inspired this special guitar. His original design features the sophisticated carving patterns that reminded him of that time and inspired this special guitar. His original design features the sophisticated top carving he uses on his Archtops. All the hardware is proprietary Marchione designed, like on the Neck-through, and this guitar has a great track record. He's built them for Mark Knopfler, Vernon Reid, and John Abercrombie – all of whom have cut CD’s with them.
