Paolo Coriani

Paolo Coriani OM

Built by Paolo Coriani, luthier in Modena; the shape is inspired by the classic OM from Martin, with cutaway; the woods are maybe the most prestigious: Italian spuce for the top and Brazilian rosewood for back and sides. The beautiful tuning machines are from Italian Nicolò Alessi.





Lazy River Weissenborn baritone

Built in 2010 by Rance White, luthier of North Carolina, is a weissenborn type instrument, with a long, baritone scale of 27.5 inches; woods are Sitka spruce for the top and American walnut for back and sides; tuning machines, installed reverse, are from Nicolò Alessi.




Fabio Ragghianti Custom

Built by Fabio Ragghianti, luthier in Pietrasanta, in Tuscany; this guitar has a shape that, more or less, reminds the Gibson L00, the scale is shorter than normal and the woods are Italian spruce for the top and a magnificient figured mahogany for back and sides. The fretboard is wider at nut (48 mm.)




Weissenborn Myrtlewood

Built in 2015 by Ermanno Pasqualato, luthier in San Pietro Viminario, close to Padova, specialized in this kind of guitars. This is my main weissenborn, entirely made of beautiful myrtlewood, a wood coming from Oregon, with almost a three-dimensional figure.



Aurelio lap steel

Pear-shaped lap steel built by Leonardo Aurelio, with absolutely unusual materials, rather than a musical instrument, almost a modern sculpture

Weissenborn Teardrop Custom

Built in 2016 by Ermanno Pasqualato, the shape here, unlike the myrtlewood one, is the “teardrop”; woods are poplar from Danube for the top and walnut from Balkans fot back and sides. I installed an armrest with a beautiful inlay of Stan & Ollie.


Lap Steel Reani custom

Built by luthier Roberto Reani, with a Lollar pickup and the TronicalTune system, with which you can change tuning in seconds.
