Wow, what a beautiful guitar! I guess the one that Ted posted looked like a copy of three companies, as I mentioned. When I said that they copied Martins and Gibsons closely in the 70's, I was NOT referring to Pizzecci brand at all, although my wording made it sound like that. I was making a general statement about copying the name brands by Japanese companies...Ibanez was the biggest copy company, so much so that they were sued by all the big American companies and had to change their designs...which spurred the name "Lawsuit guitars." Takamine was also a big copycat company. One of my bandmates has a Tak 12 string that from 10' away looks just like a Martin D-28-12...even the decal on the headstock looks like it says Martin, but upon closer inspection it say Takamine! I never heard of the Pizzecci brand until Ted's picture. Yours is gorgeous! What is the bridge made of? More info and pictures PLEASE! Thanks, Edward

Pizzecci Guitars is relatively new to the acoustic world, Edward I don't know where you got your information about them copying other brands in the 70's but Pizzecci has only been around since 2008.

Ed, thanks for the info on Harptones. I just found an interesting bit of info about George Harrison's Harptones on this link.
Darn, looks like I could've gotten a better deal on my J100 xtra!!! Edward
I remember seeing pictures of George Harrison and Ringo Starr with a Harptone! I was in NYC a couple of years ago and they had George's on display at the Hard Rock Cafe. I know there is a 45 record (remember them) with Ringo playing one too. They had that distinctive headstock...
See George's Harptone 2nd back from the front on the right of the picture:
