It's always a special day when we get a Yanuziello in the shop. This gently used Jet Black model w/a modified B3 Bigsby (read: works perfectly) is one of those instruments that makes your jaw drop at first site - its beauty, originality, quality, sheer coolness..."Where did this thing come from and why don't I know about them?" comes to mind. Build quality and playability? Flawless. Tones? Simply gorgeous both clean and overdriven. Joseph's eye for beautiful design is evident in every detail from the knobs, bridge, etc.. - all made by the man himself. The hollow body design, short scale, and custom designed Fralin Johnny Smith minihumbucker pickups yield a fat, resonant, full-bodied tone (note: these aren't Joe's standard pickups. It's rare to find minihumbuckers in these guitars). These pickups work really well in this guitar and help make it an extremely addictive guitar to play! These are quite rare and we'll be lucky to see a handful of new ones each year, much less a used one, so don't hesitate if you've been looking for one! Priced with hardshell case.
