Description

2015 is a very good year for the guitar world. Why? Because this is the year that the Massari was made by Pagelli, a monster of a jazz guitar dyed in blue that sings like gold. Only the choicest of woods were used in this build, from the Canadian Quilted Maple back and sides to the super rare Swiss Alpine "Moon" Spruce, so called because it's only harvested according to a specific calender which follows lunar cycles to ensure the Spruce is lighter, and stronger, than its other brethren. So, acoustically, the Massari is filled to the brim with a sweet, fat voice--but when amplified, the custom-wound Haussel Humbucker transforms the guitar into a surgeon's knife: immaculately clean, unerringly precise, aggressively responsive. The secret behind Haussel's technique involves his use of poles in the middle, not unlike a single coil, so the pickup catches string vibrations at one defined point, creating an articulate single coil tone with none of the hum. Take it anywhere, throw any genre at it, and the Massari will keep up. You'll want to practice more, just to play it. This guitar comes with the original Ameritage hardshell case.

Talk about a guitar that can do anything! The Massari is the absolute ultimate, a complex combination of rich tone and silky amplification.
 
An amazing guitar that seems to play itself. I could've sat and played this one for hours. The amplified sound is amazing as well.
