Unique Tuscan guitars available in the Windy City

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In the heart of Tuscany, a group of artisans and luthiers dedicated to the crafts of woodworking, metallurgy and musicianship produce some of the funkiest, high-quality guitars on Earth.

In his company’s headquarters, master luthier Bruno Bacci personally adjusts the tension and intonation on each instrument before it leaves the shop, ensuring maximum vibration and sound definition on every electric guitar, bass and baritone guitar that bears his name.

The formula has proven to be a hit, as some of the world’s most highly talented guitarists, such as American jazz and funk guitarist Mark Lettieri and Sicilian jazz and rock guitar wizard Matteo Mancuso, count Bacci guitars among their favorites. Bacci guitars are available to non-professionals, but be prepared to shell out at least $5,000-$8,000 for one of these unique, handcrafted instruments.

If simply purchasing a Bacci guitar isn’t enough, the company offers a Bacci Experience in which customers join Bacci in the final stages of the instrument-crafting process while on an immersive journey through the heart of Tuscany.
