Just Arrived: Episode 8. Marchione OMC Acoustic and Master Burst Electric

We recently got two eye-catching sunburst guitars from TX-based luthier Stephen Marchione in the shop. Have a listen as Nick shows us the acoustic OMC in Osage orange and Swiss spruce, and the Master Burst electric with silver maple and mahogany on this latest edition of Just Arrived.

Marchione Master Burst, Silver Maple and Honduran Mahogany - $16,500


TX-based luthier Stephen Marchione has an incredibly broad, encompassing approach to his craft. Rather than focusing all of his energy on just electrics, Stephen tackles steel-string acoustic, classical, archtop, semi-hollow, and violin building as well. Elements of each discipline bleed into the others, creating a cohesive style defined by clean precision and bold designs. With an archtop-inspired carved top of silver maple, a mahogany body and humbucker pickups, the Master Burst has a warm, melodic tone, versatile enough for a wide variety of playing styles and genres. Ivoroid binding helps the sunburst pop even more, while a unique headstock design adds an additional touch of visual appeal. This Marchione Master Burst is a marvel of functional artistry.
The steel-string OMC, with a Swiss spruce top and back and sides of Osage orange, sports a wide C neck shape and a warm, fundamental tone, equally as suited to fingerstyle as it is to complex chordal accompaniment and lead playing. This OMC has already sold, but please reach out if you'd like to learn more about purchasing one, or when we're getting another in.
