“Are you the Mechanic or the Driver?” A friend of mine (James) dropped in for a visit whilst travelling recently. He’s a fellow guitarist and follower of the ‘Mark TheGuitarGuy’ channel and also the Jamorama.com site. But it was the first time he’s actually been to my home in Christchurch New Zealand.

Galasso has made some great guitars, ranging from classical guitars for Lito Nebbia (an Argentinean blues guitar player and singer); electric and mind blowing guitars and bass for a great Argentinean band called PEZ, and even a gigantic double guitar for the guitar virtuoso David Fiuczynski and more lately, the famous Skate guitar.

No better Rock classic than this one! Who hasn’t seen this guitar monster around? You probably remember it in the hands of Jimmy Page delivering the intricate studio arrangements on “Stairway to heaven”, or maybe you saw it on tour with Alex Lifeson from RUSH and perhaps Elton John’s guitarists, Davey Johnstone. From the Gibson […]
