With the number of professional musicians that 'endorse' Dell'Arte guitars and end up with signature models (Jimmy Roseberg, Angelo Debarre, Boulou, etc...) I was asking myself:
- are Dell'Arte guitars really that good that all these guys want to play with them?
- is Dell'Arte simply very aggressive with their marketing and going towards all these big names and making them 'free' signature models in exchange for endorsement?
I had the chance to play 3 Dell'Arte guitars : an early production petite bouche, a swing 42 and a Robin Nolan model. While the Robin Nolan model was great, the other two were good but not exceptionnal.
What do you guys think?
