Description

This gently used Jet Black Yanuziello w/a modified B3 Bigsby (read: works perfectly) is one of those instruments that makes your jaw drop at first sight - its beauty, originality, quality, sheer coolness..."Where did this thing come from and why don't I know about them?" (Toronto, for those keeping score at home). 

Build quality and playability? Flawless. Tones? Simply gorgeous both clean and overdriven.

Joe's Yanuziello's eye for beautiful design is evident in every detail from the knobs, bridge, etc.. - all made by the man himself. The chambered body design, short scale, and custom designed Fralin Johnny Smith mini-humbucker pickups yield a fat, resonant, full-bodied tone (note: these aren't Joe's standard pickups. It's rare to find mini-humbuckers in these guitars). These pickups work really well in this guitar and help make it an extremely addictive guitar to play!

Condition: Very good to excellent. Being a black guitar, there are finish swirls and other signs of prior usage that are hard to hide, but there are no significant dings or scratches - just finish swirls and marks. The frets show no signs of wear. All electronics work as they should and the setup feels great. 

Finding a used Yanuziello guitar is quite rare. 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 to pick one up - a fantastic instrument to be sure! Priced with hardshell case.

On consignment, no trades please.
