Default Build Thread: Pagelli 40th Anniversary

This may be the first Pagelli build thread in AGF history? Not sure.

I met Claudio at SBAIC in 2016 and fell in love with the redwood parlor he had there. The volume and intimacy of that guitar was impressive and immersive. Claudio and Claudia really march to the beat of their own drum. They tend not to build the same model over and over but rather build in batches with new designs that challenge them artistically.

They're currently working on a batch of guitars they call their 40th anniversary models. Claudio had 5 guitars roughed out, and I had a chance to pick the woods I preferred of the 5 he had in process. I don't know a lot about the specs, to be honest. I'll just let them do their thing.

Top: Swiss alpine moon spruce
Back and sides: Maple
Neck and neck block/shoulder: Padauk
Fingerboard, bridge, binding: Ebony
Scale: 65 cm (25.6")
