    This is a rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully hand crafted guitar by master guitar builder Joseph Jesselli. He started out his career with master wood carver Marcos Baiter learner old world craftsmanship and carving. When he made his first guitar body he went to Jimmy D'Aquisto's shop asking him to tech him how to make a guitar neck. Upon seeing Jesselli's work D'Aquisto hired him to be his right hand man. after close to 10 years working with D'Aquisto Jesselli struck out on his own to create his own instruments.

    Shortly after Jesselli managed to meet Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. After playing the guitar for a bit Keith asked Jesselli "do you know what its is?" referring to the guitar, Jesselli responded no and Keith replied "MINE" that guitar is still in use by keith spotted in recent recordings and the only non fender/gibson spotted in his Rolling Stones rehearsal rig!
