1988 Ron DeMarino Custom Solid Body Electric Guitar dual EMG active humbuckers, ebony inlaid FB vintage and aged *509-k1ff

1,600.00

This is a very unusual 19 year old vintage Ron DeMarino solid body electric guitar with active EMG Humbuckers wired to 2 9 volt batteries in the rear cavity.  John DeMarino is a former guitarist with the Lester Lanin Orchestra, a protege of John D'Angelico, a luthier with a shop on Long Island that still exists with his son, and most famously the guitar guru/luthier for John Lennon from 1972 till retirement of Lennon. He has worked on every guitar Lennon ever had apparently and would sit on the bed with John and Yoko in it, taking notes on work to be done.  All in the line of duty.  It is unknown how many guitars Ron has made, but we have a call into him concerning this particular piece and its provenance.  He is not known for being readily accessible, but we expect to hear back at some point.  Please note, this guitar is very aged- and not by plan.  It has been bopped, dinged, chipped and  there is one break on of of the wings that is intact, checked, and overall looks like it has seen  a lot of road use.  And yet, the fret wires look almost new.  Perhaps a refret job- jumbos.  The solid body is mahogany, dressed in a custom white finish with neon pink and neon yellow.  The nick profile is tapered and fast, with black sealed tuning machines, jumbo frets, a bound ebony fingerboard with white mop inlays in a flickering flame pattern that matches the theme on the back.  DeMarino is know for his inlay work. The humbuckers are wired to 9 volt batteries contained in the rear cavity, which is wired to an 18 volt preamplifier with a mini-toggle switch pup selector, mini toggle switch phase selector, and two volume and one single master tone control knobs. Equipped with a white body Kahler locking temolo, with matching stamped serial numbers on the neck and body. Ron's signature is below the neck heel.  Ships in a white coffin case.  There is no tremolo arm.  Please look at the photos carefully.  Also please remember that in in-studio lighting the colors are more brilliant than in low lighting.  But the colors are accurate. It has plenty of character and some historic value.  Grunge.
