L’Omaggio (The Homage)

Serial #S1811

L’Omaggio (homage or tribute) is an absolutely striking testament to the grand guitars of the jazz age. 18″ at the lower bout, 3 1/4″ deep, with a Florentine cutaway and a 1 11/16″ neck width (slightly narrower than our traditional Flagships), this guitar took both Bob and Howard by surprise with its comfortable feel, huge sound, and effortless playability. Built as an acoustic instrument with an X-braced European spruce top and fine European flamed maple for the back and sides, the guitar fills the room with warmth and presence. The headstock is borrowed from the Cremona model with an Amboyna burl faceplate and snakewood tuning buttons. The unique headstock inlay is abalone, mother-of-pearl, and a beautiful turquoise recon-stone motif that is subtly echoed throughout the block inlays on the ebony fingerboard ,affixed to a one-piece domestic flamed maple neck. Bound in a Fratello binding package and equipped with a floating S6 Benedetto pickup, a traditional bound ebony pickguard and ebony tailpiece. This guitar comes with a Cedar Creek case measured by the acre.
