HI Michael,

I played a gig a few nights ago and one of the other bands on the gig had a bassist with a Martin acoustic bass...I thought it sounded beautiful but the player said he thought it sounded better before he had some work done on it. Like Ken, I would like to hear more about the tone and the construction of your  Ibanez bass!  Thanks,, Edward

Hi everyone I just bought a Jumbo acoustic electric Bass.I liked the Jumbo Ibenez that I have so much that I had the chance to try out one of the acoustic basses they make.Its a spruce top cutaway,it's nice to sit around and play acoutic or plugged in.I tried to add a picture of it here once already with no luck.but if you go to my pictures it did go there.

Has anyone here seen the Acoustic Guitar 2011 Player's Choice Awards (October Edition of the magazine)?

Jumbo Award
Gold: Gibson J-200
Silver: Martin J12-40E
Silver: Taylor 455
Bronze: Guild F-50

Gold: Taylor GS6-12
Silver: Martin J12-40E
Bronze: Guild F-512

My jumbos are all 30+ year-old Guilds, however...


(Feeble, qausi-evangelistic effort)


Let it be known hereafter that, if I were in the market for a brand new guitar, I would most certainly be purchasing a New Hartford Guild (of course, it would *most certainly* be a jumbo... and I would need a 6 string and a 12 string... I just can't decide on maple or rosewood as I love them both...)

(I will bet there are some New Hartford Guild owners out there that can do a whole lot better than that.)

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. 
Comment by Christopher Cozad on August 3, 2011 at 6:57am
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

Check this out...

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 they just copy three guitars in one!  ;-)  Edward "
