SIX SWIPE PICS! This is my new #pickguard design I have been using on my hand-carved Petillo WAVE archtop jazz guitar models. The pickguard has a credit card thick piece of paua abalone sea shell on it that was cut/segmented together on different angles to give a swirly perspective. Check out all the pics!
TWO SWIPE PICS! Cracked headstock restoration on a @martinguitar! Understanding string pressure/tension is most important for the crack to never open up and that's why I make my own glue to hold the crack together permanently. A good repair should show no sign of the crack. Check out the before and after pics!
Podemos repensar nossa mobilidade urbana! Ainda que nosso modelo de cidade esteja muito longe do modelo europeu podemos fazer pequenos ajustes diários como frequentar a academia do bairro, ou ir à padaria a pé! Evitar o carro sempre que possível e/ou dar e receber carona. São nos gestos do dia a dia que diminuímos a emissão de gases poluentes e ajudamos a melhorar o caos do trânsito urbano. #arquitetura #arquiteturadeinteriores #petillo #petilloarquitetura #carros #design #cars #poluicao #polution #city #cities #citta #ville #transporteurbano #transporte #urbanismo #brasil
EIGHT SWIPE PICS! A while back my Dad (Dr. Phil Petillo) stained this two piece book matched German quilted maple top with natural perimeter binding transparent blue for me. With my schedule and Christmas commissions my pal Pat Sims glossed the sides and back for me in a blue pearl. Check out all the pics!! Photo Credit: Pat Sims
Estos son los utensilios que utilizo para pasar el cordón, la aguja grande me la hizo un herrero. Recuerda que ni el cordón, ni las ballenas era lo que se utilizaba, así es que si quieres recrear un traje del siglo XVIII deberás utilizar por ejemplo ramitas de naranjo #mimcostura #indumentariatradicional #indumentariaregional #indumentariavalenciana #1700s #patterncutting #18thcenturyfashion #modafallera #costura #patrones #tiendadepatrones #trajedefallera #pattern #patternstore #patronaje #modisteria #envarado #pala #fallera #petillo

Numa reforma é comum acontecerem imprevistos. É importante que o cliente esteja ciente desde o começo sobre isso. Apartamentos que já foram habitados por outros moradores “escondem” surpresas que muitas vezes impedem que alguma especificação de projeto seja executada. E é aí que estar cercado de bons profissionais faz a diferença. Juntos conseguimos numa conversa no local encontrar a solução certa para tirar do papel e executar sonhos! #reforma #arquitetura #arquiteturadeinteriores #petilloarquitetura #antesedepois #petillo #higianopolis
Here is a clip from “Frantic”, a song that I am always pumped to play live and show to my friends! This is the second tune off of my second EP “Movin”👊 There is also a killer music video directed by @damiankul for this track on YouTube.

Get out the #vote!!! My Father (Dr. Phil Petillo) worked with The White House Historical Society in the 80's and helped restore and make wonderful works of art for The White House. As a kid I made this old school eagle and shield #marquetry plaque because I was proud of my Dad being apart of American history craftsmanship wise. #ivoted

Petillo archtop back headstock with marquetry colored wood veneer DNA inlay! Checkout the tobacco burst on the neck and black stinger highlight!
The Petillo Point body shape archtop guitar with American hard maple binding and paua abalone purfling!! Tobacco burst on white German flame maple! My Father (Dr. Phil Petillo) was the last one to apprentice with John D'Angelico and later finishing his journey with Jimmy Desiro, John's relative. I cherish the old world Italian artisan techniques I learn from my Dad that go all the way back to John. #italianartist

Checkout the human hand in white mother of pearl with grey Tahitian pearl fingernails bridge wing inlay on a Petillo acoustic guitar. The colorful dotted wing butterflies with small white antennas flutter near the hand. The sound-board is made of German silver spruce.
Checkout my new headstock design for my pal animator/writer Steve Ellis. I love how the Paua abalone sea shell headstock ripples like water! The back of the headstock has a German quilted maple overlay. I plan to inlay into the paua abalone with white mother of pearl!

El modelo Alicia ha sido el que ha conseguido más votos, pero la diferencia ha sido tan pequeña que voy a hacer los dos (menudo excusa tonta que me he buscado, a quién trato de engañar?) he elegido esta tela negra de tapicería para la casaca y el raso en color champán para el falso petillo, creo que lo bordaré en negro... Os gusta? #mimcostura #corteyconfeccion #modisteria #moda #patrones #tiendadepatrones #trajedefallera #modafallera #costura #indumentariavalenciana #indumentariaregional #indumentariatradicional #patterncutting #patternstore #fashion #1700s #18thcenturyunderwear #fallas #casaca #petillo
Petillo "CROWN" headstock shape with dyed wood veneer marquetry #flowers, colorful butterflies with dot highlights and small white antennas. The Petillo logo is in a fancy #renaissance font and outlined in thin gold foil with a white bone center. The inlaid rod cover is a woman's hand trying to touch the butterflies! The hand itself is in white mother of pearl oyster shell and the fingernails abalone sea shell. The human-hand is a challenge in all #art styles. Whether the hand is in a #painting, #drawing or in this case inlay, it takes skill to make it realistic. I didn't intend to have the butterflies come out so #cartoon like but I'm happy with the look. Check out all five SLIDE pics!
This is a 1985 Petillo acoustic guitar made by my late Father, Dr. Phillip J. Petillo. I always post on my social media all my artwork and projects but this instrument is all my Dad's creation. He taught me so much about music and luthiery from the age of 5. His work had a traditional old folk art look to it. Check out the hand lathed Boar's ivory bridge pins/saddle, spade/cross mother of pearl inlays, diamond green soundhole rosette, Brazilian rosewood pickguard with natural wood marquetry inlay, maple binding around the body with black-mahogany-black purfling highlights and the sound-board is made of German silver spruce. Everytime I see one of my Dad's creations I think how it helped our family. He lived by his art and inventions. He had 32 patents in fields ranging from classified government technology, medical instrumentation like skull clamps and cutters for the eye/bone/brain tissue, fuel cells, hydrogen generators to stringed instruments.
This is a custom Petillo "Point" style guitar design. The guitar is made of a one piece German popcorn/quilted maple grain top, dyed forest green with natural maple color tones in the center of the burst. Check out the celtic knot carvings I did on the volume knobs and cross inlay on the diamond shaped tailpiece. This was made for my long-time friend @jesseurmey!
"Snake-Vine-Flowers" (great band name by the way) white mother of pearl tailpiece top carving/engraving! This is all #dremel work and after cutting out the windows I tumbled the piece to round over all inside scars from the engraving tools. This is the largest useable piece of sea shell I have ever seen! It's as big as a baseball!
This was an amazing project that encompasses hand engraving, engineering and modifing a talking action figure toy!! I made this for @therealstanlee at Comic Con a few years ago when I met him. The base/lid of the box is Brazilian rosewood with a comic-page-colored parchment Corina composite material top/beveled base. Inside the Corian frame is a circuit board I took apart from a talking INCREDIBLE HULK action figure. I made a speaker/mic filter to enhance the HULK's voice (seen in the top left hand corner). Also, checkout the engraving of the HULK and the comic book action bubble around the push button. Stan loved it and we had a nice talk! Give the video a listen!!!
Petillo Nigerian ebony tailpiece with memorial torch inlay! The inlay is made of gold pearl, white mother of pearl, paua abalone and red fire stone. I attached the ebony tailpiece with a brass plated gold screw post to the body bracket henge.
Mallard inlay on a Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay background for a Petillo acoustic. The inlay is made of red/rainbow abalone, gold pearl and white mother of pearl. Check out the two piece beak and ebony eye of the mallard.
El corset del Rococó se anudaba por la parte frontal y usualmente poseía un petillo ( pieza central independiente que podía cambiar de textura o materialidad). La paleta en tonos pasteles fue característica del periodo. En la imagen de la izquierda corset del siglo XVIII, en la imagen sobre la derecha colección de Marysia @marysia 🇬🇧 The Rococo corset was knotted on the front and usually had a stomacher (independent centerpiece that could change texture or material). The palette in pastel tones was characteristic of the period.

I just finished micropolishing the frets on @bobbymahoneymusic @black35guitars Gibson Junior style relic. My father Dr. Phil Petillo invented a process of micropolishing that is used with his patented Petillo Precision Frets aka "triangle/pyramid frets" and I apply this process to every setup I do. The procedure involves the frets being polished from 400 grit sand paper all the way up to 10,000 grit lens paper (which polishes telescope lenses). The entire idea is to make the surface area so glass-like the metal string can resonate a clear true note with intonation clarity. I always use the example of the wine glass filled with liquid and the player rubs the rim…and the friction of that motion makes a note. You can imagine if the rim was rough, it would not be as reflective to carry the note. That is the principle with polishing the frets to so fine and flawless a gloss…the notes seem to hang in midair. Also, check out the new Schaller Signum nickel wrap around bridge for really dead-on intonation and comfortable action. Check out Bobby and his band the Seventh Son, they opened for my friend @bonjovi a while back. Bobby is a good guy!!
SEVEN SWIPE PICS for #tbt! I made a box for singer/songwriter @brianwilsonlive of the #beachboys and give it to him at the Count Basie Theater show - September 21, 2016 in Red Bank New Jersey this copper engraved American birdseye/German flame maple box. The copper stamping/engraving circle motif has symbolism to his life. The shield stands for courage, the heart means love, the W crown on top of the heart is for Wilson, the center of the heart has surfboard stripes with palm trees and lighting bolts on the inside as well. It was a great night! Check out all the pics!
Petillo tailpiece damper! Hand carved brass plated gold. The carving took forever. I painted the inside shadows with black filler that made the piece pop in a 3d way. I love doing the classic Victorian scroll swirl design engraving. This is for a Petillo archtop acoustic.
The 12th fret on a guitar is the center point of the fingerboard scale and that means something unique that defines the guitar should always be a focal point. On this Petillo acoustic guitar the fingerboard is made of Nigerian ebony that is framed in rare paua abalone binding trim with two white mother of pearl tulip inlays. Also, check out the Petillo Precision Fret aka triangle/pyramid frets made of military grade stainless steel that my Dad (#philpetillo) invented and patented in the late sixties. I love how it looks delicious enough to eat!
Check out all the pics and video! I had a blast @the_stone_pony with @gavindegraw and @billy_norris last night. Special thanks to Billy! He was such a sweetheart/gentleman to give me and @iancolletti @eriikjones @wra_88 tickets and backstage passes. Billy also played my Wave archtop jazz guitar too (seen in the above pic of me with the @marvel shirt and him). I met Billy a while back @billyjoel show in Philly and fixed his cracked headstock on his Gibson Les Paul. It was a great show and @davidbryanfc of @bonjovi jumped on stage playing #improv paino parts to one of Gavin's songs. Like at the @thegaslightanthem show with @perkins28 @raritanbayguitarrepair and @thebrianfallon it was a great conversation about guitars, music and gear! The music business truly rocks!
Labor Day weekend is a symbol for all work/laboring. In this case check out this labor of love #celticknot stop tailpiece I made/carved/engraved. The piece is made of 20-24 aircraft aluminum alloy. Each of the inside openings were painted to match the inlay work of this Petillo electric guitar my Father (Dr. Phil Petillo) made in the mid 80's. The base of the tailpiece is made of Nigerian ebony. Happy #laborday weekend my friends and blessings to all!
A rosette can define a guitar's look. This rosette design encompasses the geometry of a diamond shape with the style of a #celticknot and I call it a Diamond-Knot! Making a rosette has a lot to do with layering thin natural and colored dyed wood veneers to form a pattern. With my Dad's teaching, I was able to create this for a left-handed Petillo acoustic. Also check out the diamond swirl mother of pearl inlay in the ebony fingerboard above the rosette.
This is for a very special project! The #potionbottle is framed in white mother of pearl, the liquid is turquoise and the bubbles are gold and white pearl/Tibetan blue stone. The bubbles are floating up as position markers. The fingerboard is made of Madagascar ebony. When I get the frets in I will post the entire neck.
EIGHT SWIPE PICS! I had a blast @the_stone_pony watching the @thegaslightanthem show! Had a great conversation about music, Tal Farlow, art and guitar making with @raritanbayguitarrepair @perkins28 & @thebrianfallon! I brought one of my Wave archtop guitars to show the band. This guitar has a tribute inlay to E Street Band member #dannyfederici on the headstock. The music notes on the Wave carry Danny's "Sandy Song" solo with his accordian rod cover as a memorial resting on the Asbury Park boardwalk. Kyle, Ian and Brian we're awesome to speak with and very kind. Thanks to @luciaholm for tips on blurry photos. From her advice I was able to get these pics crisp from the show.
SEVEN SWIPE PICS! Check out my intercontinental friend @kalikazoo @kalikazooband handmade amplifier plaque I made her! It was made to replace her Carvin amp plaque. The piece is made of rare paua green/blue abalone, maple dyed neon pink veneer, 24k gold foil paper and a black composite phenolic backing to hold the brittle abalone together. Check out her page!! She is a multi talented artist and a sweetheart of a person! I look forward to working with her again.
My Uncle Joe Petillo's design of Water! I made his design into a necklace. He would always say "water seeks it's own level." Check out the combo of different abalone sea shell colors, the sterling silver star above and the black phenolic composite circle background.
Ei "Toneca"...já se vão alguns anos e eu continuo escutando tua voz. Quando tudo parece sem sentido e quando o sentido é maior que tudo, quando me sinto perdido e quando sei exatamente o que fazer. Não importa de qual lado da moeda eu esteja, a saudade é grande demais pra pôr em palavras. Quem sabe eu consiga, com muito esforço, ser um pouco do homem que você foi. Te amo coroa, feliz dia dos pais, de onde você estiver! #petillo #saudade #lutoeterno #naomeacostumo #dóitododia
SIX SLIDE PICS! Checkout this vintage Martin D-35 marquetry flower pickguard I made ten years ago for our friend singer-songwriter-musician Sandy Privetera. I used an amber nitrocellulose lacquer on the pickguard so overtime it would patina to blend in with the honey/yellow spruce soundboard. It came in today for some minor maintenance work. Checkout the pics!
FOUR SLIDE PICS! New headstock shape!!! Checkout all the perspective pics of the headstock for left handed and reverse orientations. The neck is made of roasted German flame maple with three layer laminated wing made of American maple dyed black, Austrian maple and Indian ebony.
FIVE SLIDE PICS! Rose inlay on a French walnut headstock overlay background! The inlay is made of Tahitian grey pearl, paua abalone, white mother of pearl and gold pearl. Also, checkout the Petillo crown headstock shape designed by my Father (Dr. Phil Petillo). My Dad invented so many headstock shapes for his instruments, Kramer Guitars and private collectors.
TEN SWIPE PICS! More pics of Gus Fiducio's Petillo Archtop! The neck heel shape and binding joint blend came out great. I love the contrast between the German white flame maple body and tan looking American maple outside binding. The olive branch first fret inlay is a symbol of peace. The leaves are falling down the fingerboard as fret markers. The front headstock overlay is American tan flame maple to match the binding. Check out the pics!
