“The most beautiful guitar I’ve ever seen, built by the most creative guitar builder I’ve ever met.”  Those are the words of Bob Benedetto,  who is considered one of the world’s all time great guitar luthiers, when he was confronted with one of Claudio Pagelli’s guitars.  Praise doesn’t get much higher than that, but it doesn’t stop others from heaping compliments on the Swiss guitar builder.  Jazz legend Jim Hall told Claudio “you remind me of my friend James D’Aquisto”.  OK, enough said!

Pagelli is raising the bar so high in the archtop world that you’ll need a helicopter just to see it.  Fortunately, you’ll need no more than a couple mouse clicks to experience these guitars for yourself, because we are thrilled to announce that Pagelli guitars are coming to The Music Zoo in 2014.  Contact our sales team for exact arrival dates, but we know now that the majestic Massari will be among the first instruments that we will receive.  Yes, these guitars are big bucks, but we know of no other single luthiers out there doing more to take the art and science of archtop guitar building to such a high level.  Get in touch now if you are serious about adding one to your collection.
