The Meniketti Signature Guitar

This is an ultimate performance, heart beating machine, in terms of tone and playability and is a great looker on stage, too. This guitar will bring you the high-performance you would expect from a best in quality hand crafted instrument, and with all the features of a prized high end instrument. Offered with the utmost quality in craftsmanship for which Bisceglia Guitars is known for. Using the finest traditional tonewoods, hardware and pickups, the Bisceglia Meniketti Signature Guitar is a true professional instrument with all the traditional features. All this, and killer looks, too, with the original traditional antique red burst finish used on original Bisceglia Meniketti guitar.


The body of the Meniketti is crafted with a six layer bound hand-carved AAA maple top, which is fitted to a body made from a solid piece of mahogany. The tone qualities, resonance and sustain of this guitar is impeccable. Marrying maple's clarity and definition to mahogany's richness and depth produces a tonal complexity that no single-wood guitar can ever match. And the degrees of resonance and sustain produced with this combination are only further enhanced by the deep-set quarter-sawn mahogany neck with 17-degree back-angled headstock.  The 24 5/8" - inch scale length bolt on neck is also made from one solid piece of quarter sawn mahogany with a  22-fret single bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard with round MOP inlays and Dave's traditional moon / star inlay at the first fret.  Optimum playability is insured by a fast but comfortably rounded neck profile.  The pickups are Seymour Duncan Jazz Model SH-2 the neck position, which is a classic moderate output humbucker and at the bridge a Seymour Duncan Custom 5 SH-14.  The SH-14 is like a high output '59 Model with a deeper bottom end and expanded output. The combination of these two pick-ups can give warm bluesy tones in addition to hard fat rockin' tones. And to keep you tightly in tune Grover 18:1 tuning keys.


Other features include Gotoh Tune-o-matic bridge and aluminum stopbar tailpiece, multi-ply white and black binding on both the guitar body top plate and headstock , single ply binding on the finger board, gold hardware and a custom 1 11/16" width bone nut.  The neck has a custom thin profile for easy playability.  Vintage electronics with military spec sealed volume and tone controls and Vishay/Sprague Orange Drop Capacitors. No more scratchy output from this setup!  Off course these are custom guitars and it's up to you to decide what you would like in your guitar! Also available with highly figured flamed or quilted maple tops.


This guitar would scream with a multitude of tones fitted with Seymours P-Rails and Triple Shot pickup rings also available. Something to seriously consider.
