Marchione 59 Semi Hollow Body Sunburst

$14,100.00

This guitar is a Marchione 59 Semi-Hollow Body in mint shape that has only been played a few times.

If you are looking at this, you know all about this—a very special instrument.

The idea to construct such an instrument was born one evening when Marchione encountered Mike Moreno, a renowned New York-based jazz musician, at a private concert. Marchione watched on as he played with his standard semi-hollow body guitar. Impressed with his virtuosic jazz chops, Marchione felt that his instrument robbed Moreno of sound quality.

As with all of his guitars, Marchione never uses plywood and always uses individual cuts of quality tonewood. Undoubtedly the choice if you want to move from a generic, playable compromise to a professional instrument.

Description

This guitar is a Marchione 59 Semi-Hollow Body in mint shape that has only been played a few times.

If you are looking at this, you know all about this—a very special instrument.

The idea to construct such an instrument was born one evening when Marchione encountered Mike Moreno, a renowned New York-based jazz musician, at a private concert. Marchione watched on as he played with his standard semi-hollow body guitar. Impressed with his virtuosic jazz chops, Marchione felt that his instrument robbed Moreno of sound quality.

After the show, Marchione talked with Moreno and proposed building a semi-hollow body electric guitar with my carefully developed 15″ Mark Whitfield Archtop guitar as the base design. Moreno agreed, and months later, he and Marchione were thrilled with the pictured result. The tone and sustain dealt out by this guitar are truly astonishing.

The body of the Standard Semi-hollow guitar is made of a gorgeous Italian Alpine Spruce top and an African Mahogany back. Divine. The Premium models are available in a wide variety of woods. These guitars are available with a “modern,” symmetrical f-hole design as pictured, but Marchione also makes them with the “classic” f-hole design.

As with all of my guitars, Marchione never uses plywood and always uses individual cuts of quality tonewood. Undoubtedly the choice if you want to move from a generic, playable compromise to a professional instrument.
