Meet Your Maker(s): Bagnasco & Casati

Saturday, April 26, 2014 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Bagnasco & Casati

Join us Saturday, April 26th, as we welcome Italian luthiers Alessio Casati and Andrea Bagnasco to TME! Bagnasco & Casati have a long-standing history as two of the finest vintage guitar repairmen in Europe; but they've been making a compelling stride into the vintage-replica marketplace with their own hand-built guitars over the last few years. Each Bagnasco & Casati instrument features an Italian Red Spruce soundboard (and bracewood) and non-adjustable Maple 'V-Bar' neck reinforcement. How do those elements make the sound of their guitars stand out from the crowd? Stop in and find out. We'll have our first two B&C guitars (replicas of a Banner Gibson SJ and a late '30's Martin 000-18 Sunburst) on display, and the builders will be here to field questions and converse.
