Here we have a handmade Single Cut Style instrument built by Nicholas Giordano; a young man in Reggio Emilia, Italy that is proving to be an incredible guitar builder way beyond his age. We are happy to carry his fantastic guitars. Nicholas has been very accommodating to some of the specifics Zeke's Guitars & Mercantile has requested based on Sam's playing experiences and tastes. As a result, this is one of many more to come from Giordano Guitars with a few "Zeke" requests.  

The tones that were created historically with the recipe of korina, rosewood fretboards, PAF type pickups and an ABR type bridge are like none other. This one tips it's hat to that with respect tonally and aesthetically but in a less cumbersome shape. Not to mention the gold hardware and the beautiful stinger. It's got a stinger man!

We love his creative take on a classic body shape and the "end of the book" headstock design. Check out the tight grains of the Rosewood fretboard. This guitar acoustically rings like crazy!  What an inspiring instrument. This one and the others we have/will be receiving from Giordano, we're calling premium builds. With some of our own "Zeke" requests, that Nicholas was more than accommodating with, really make these guitars truly great. Come and check these out if you can or reach out and we will answer any questions you may have.
