DESCRIPTION:

Here is another of Frank Verrilli's art guitars that showcases a hand carved shallow relief that is painstakingly finished with nitrocellulose. This model has a great folk-art vibe due to Frank's process of carving which, along with the aging process, allows for slight irregularity in each star and in the lines. This guitar just screams to be touched and played. Frank explains the placement and balance of old glory on a T style guitar is pretty challenging. "I made a lot of mock ups before I found what felt correct (once you start carving there is no turning back). Also, I wasn't sure how I was going to paint it. I didn't think I could paint nitrocellulose on the intricate carved areas, but once I did some tests and tried various paints, I realized it had to be done that way" says Frank.

As far as tone and playability, this is a straight up T style; a light-weight ash body, a fat one-piece maple neck, Fralin stock Tele pickups, and of course, Frank's oiled neck back with heavy rolled edges. (Other neck specs available upon request.)
