Hello Gregory is your jumbo full size or is it a smaller model,sometimes pictures can be disceving.My big black Ibenez which you can see at the top is a farely looking big guitar and it is.I have seen some of the Pizzecci guitars and they look nice.Good luck with The guitar you are they only person it has to truely impress.If your like some of the other guys myself included that have a large set of acoustic and electric's,you'll find you enjoy the Ovation for certian things or which Martin do I whant for this song because there is a different sound to all of them or feel.As far as my Ibenez Jumbo goes for the deep rich sound I can get with it,It was the best $199.00 I spent until I can get my Gibson or Martin.I already have a Gibson special EC 180,it's a smaller one but it is still nice to play.

Yes sir, thanks Christopher for the kind words.

Lovely, Gregory, just lovely. You are building these?
Comment by Gregory Kurt Pizzeck on August 3, 2011 at 5:55am
Thanks for clearing that up Edward.  The bridge is made out of Tiger maple to match the back/sides/headstock.  The fretboard is curly rock maple, and the binding is peruvian nogal walnut.  Here are a couple more pictures.

Hi Gregory,

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 Guitar Jumbo; Tiger Maple back/sides with 'AAA' Bear Claw sitka spruce soundboard

 

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.

Ted, the Pizzecci guitars...looking at the picture I see it has a Martin body, Takemine headstock and a Taylor bridge...In the 70's they copied Martins and Gibsons so close it was scary...now they just copy three guitars in one!  ;-)  Edward "

Ed, thanks for the info on Harptones.  I just found an interesting bit of info about George Harrison's Harptones on this link.

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:
