For Sale: Dell Arte DG-H1 Favino Style D Hole

Up for sale is my Favino style Dell Arte DG-H1. I bought this new in 2008, played it on many gigs, and kept it in its case when I wasn’t playing it. It’s in amazing shape, and the finish has developed a warm honey color over the years. This one of the early ones made overseas for Dell Arte; serial number is 0000024. 

This model has a solid spruce top, laminated rosewood back & sides, 3-piece maple neck, nickel tailpiece & tuners, ebony fretboard. The extra-wide lower bout gives it more bass than the usual gypsy jazz guitar. The neck/body joint is at the 14th fret for good access to the upper frets. More specs listed below.

There is a Bigtone pickup in the bridge, though I mostly used the soundboard transducer shown in the photo (the black wire running from under the bridge to the tailpiece). Both are included. (I used a Baggs Para DI preamp on gigs which isn’t included here but I’d recommend something like that for live use.)

Also included: the green Eastman fiberglass case seen in the photo (with built-in backpack straps!), a classic Wegen pick, and a few packages of strings. 

Asking $900 $800 for everything. For now I’m only looking at in-person pickup in Western Massachusetts, no shipping.

Feel free to hit me up with any questions, or make me an offer!

    Aw thanks! Life has changed a lot for me this last decade. Still love the music, just not playing it so much nowadays!
