    Hi guy's I've wait enough before doing this review.


    The guitar is a Telecaster style guitar with a mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard and an amazing Brass Top on a mahogany body
    Kluson style tuner. Kinman broadcaster pickyps CTS pots.

    I use it with either my Maven Rg-88, Komet 60 or bruno underground 45
    I just get the best fat drive I ever get with a T style guitar very fat kind of p90 sound on the neck, and a kind of a fat cutting sound on the bridge.

    And on the clean I can get the kind of standard tele sound but with more bottom. The volume and tone are the more wide I have try.

    The guitar look terrific.Not for the relic guy's ( Normally i'm one of those)
    I'll try to post some pics soon


    I just don't know why those guitar are never mentionned anywhere
    anyway take alook at there website Joe Bonamassa used them too
    www.gigliottiguitars.com


    Thanks Patrick Gigliotti you Rock :dude

    Carl, do you live in Canada? If so, Pat and I were talking about your guitar. I'm in the mix for ordering my 2nd Gigliotti. I own a Gigliotti GT Custom and they are phenominal machines. I have some Kinman Broadcasters on the way replacing the Bardens. Mine is #15 ever built...modeled exactly after Joe Bonamassa's first one with the exception of the headstock and pickups (I've played most of Joe's Gigliottis).

    I've had the pleasure of playing a few of Pats teles and a good bud just got a strat. WOW indeed. Killer guitars to say the least. If I were in the market for a new guitar, one of these would do it for sure!

    Thanks man, but I'll tell you for as good as it looks...the sound from that rig I used that night was killer. All I had was that guitar and amp and a Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso. Quick setup and teardown and the guys said that that night was the best I played (I was sessioning with a country/rock band). I attribute that comment to the rig I played, because I felt there were other nights I'd played better with them.

    I'll be talking to Pat soon.

    can't say I like the way it looks . . . but then again I'm not one for white-walls and metal-flake pinstriping either.

    I just made sure that Joe B's name wasn't on my guitar. That's really all I told Pat. I want it exactly like Joe's first but with his 2nds headstock (metal headstock vs the older Fender style headstock)...BUT...do not put Joe's signature on it. :)
