Yanuziello Viceroy Sunburst


We are thrilled to have our first Yanuziello guitar in the shop! This 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, tailpiece, etc.. - all made by the man himself. The hollow body design, short scale, and custom designed Fralin pickups yield an extremely articulate, resonant, full-bodied tone (Bill Frisell owns a Yanuziello, btw). These are extremely rare and we'll be lucky to see a handful each year. Priced with hardshell case.

Interested? We may have another on the way.
