At first glance the SP Super Series guitar built for me by the redoubtable Mr. Rizzolo bears superficial resemblance to a well-known guitar that has long been associated with me. Certainly its shape and basic pick-up configuration follow the template of that legendary instrument, but there the resemblances end.
Its delicious birds-eye maple top and mahogany body line it up more with the classic stylings of a Gibson, but in its detail and finishing it stands completely alone.
I have just finished recording in LA for Alanis Morissette and used my Rizzolo guitar. In the studio it was sonically perfect.
