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...

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).

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!
SEVEN SLIDE PICS! Carved Petillo archtop Wave model guitar for my long time friend Gus Fiducio! German book matched flame maple with paua abalone purfling and American maple binding. The German vs American maple have different densities and color tones! Check out the Petillo point designed by my Father (Dr. Phil Petillo). Bending the point is an artform and my Dad could bend wood in ways no one could imagine.
The Petillo #Wave seven string archtop headstock inlay! Checkout the historic #asburyparkboardwalk. This Wave is made of Madagascar ebony, pear wood, French walnut, Amazon mahogany, maple dyed sky blue wave shadows and burgundy red sky with three small ebony seagulls flying above. The next step is delicately milling/drilling the tuning key holes and sanding the headstock smooth.
SEVEN SWIPE PICS! Check out this fret restoration on a vintage Gibson "The Ripper" model bass for my friend Daniel Rey. I had to level the frets, taking off a business card worth of thickness off the tops of the frets to get the string dents/rusty grime out, then I reshaped the frets to their original state and micropolished them. 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. The last step was to install the original pickguard and set up with low action.
Gibson handmade bridge with layered colored wood veneer pattern marquetry strip inlays in a Southwestern design. The bridge is made of German figured maple, Nigerian ebony and perimeter bounded in Indian rosewood. The relief lines in front of the bridge pins holes follow the saddle angle in length.
This Wednesday a day before the @jimmyfallon show performance of there new song "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" @howie_dorough came by the shop to hangout and check out some inlays/guitars! Besides being a really nice guy Howie is a singer, songwriter, actor and member of the @backstreetboys! Special thanks to @kevinbonafide for the photo.
NINE SWIPE PICS! Spockcaster for my pal the talented Frank Bressi! Frank also knew my Dad (Dr. Phil Petillo) who restored his Gibson SG cracked headstock back in the day. This was a long project to finally get done. I refinished a guitar body Frank picked up. The finish is supposed to look like Spock's velvet style blue uniform and the engraving is done in a black anodized aluminum pickguard. I took the drawing of Spock and converted it to engrave. Check out the pics."Live Long And Prosper!"
TEN SWIPE PICS! Tremolo cavity surprise! A black phenolic platform, resembling a compass box with a hand engraved brass compass star. Check out the details of this engraving with each line and letter. I wanted to match the satin brass tremolo block and claw by using acid to patina the compass engraving. The compass engraving artwork is for the amazing wood carver and my friend @mcmahonartistry on his CHIEF guitar he made from scratch! Scott is a serious artisan with an old world style!
TEN SWIPE PICS! Born To Run Pickguard! My Father (Dr. Phil Petillo) told me of a leathersmith he knew and helped to co-design the original 'Man Under A Street Lamp' for Bruce in the mid 70's. The original pickguard was made of leather and didn't hold up to sweat, water pouring on himself during a passionate Bruce performance, also his guitar pick when strumming would hit the leather guard and slow him down. I decided to make a new version out of black phenolic material that could take a pounding. Black phenolic was what my Father used for fingerboards when he designed the first Kramer Guitar and Bass line. Back then they called it ebonal and Martin guitar company calls it black micarta. The ASBURY PARK and NEW JERSEY fonts are in white mother of pearl. The midnight blue sky is Tibetan dark stone with some very small gold flake mineral. The moon, circle stars, lamp light, and window backgrounds are in gold pearl. The blinds on the windows are made of Tahitian grey pearl. Patti's hair is in orange stone. The brick squares, asphalt lines, jacket and jeans outline and the awning over Clarence is epoxy to give a light grey shadow appearance, as if the moon enhanced them to glow. In the future I'm going to inlay images of the departed Danny Federici playing accordion and Terry MaGovern in the windows. I hope you enjoy the pics.
TWO SWIPE PICS! Checkout this commission. It's made of Tahitian grey pearl background with dremel/carved gold pearl peace symbol of the lion, the second Adam/the last Adam and the lamb.

On a trouvé les coupables. Vous avez-vu la vidéo avec la tortue qui s'est retrouvé avec une paille coincée dans le nez au Costa Rica ? Je me baladais côté Caraïbes sur une plage "protégée" du Costa Rica et voilà que je trouve des pailles en plastique prête à se retrouver dans l'eau. Les coupables ? Les gens qui ne les jettent pas à la poubelle mais surtout la population locale qui distribuent ces pailles en vendant les cocos. J'ai été déçue quand les gens de la réserve me disaient que c'était des pailles qui venaient de loin, qu'ils n'ont rien à voir alors que juste à l'entrée on trouve les vendeurs avec ces mêmes pailles bleues.... La population locale n'est pas très sensibilisée à la protection de leur environnement... #CostaRicanotgreen #straw #straws #paille #pailles #pajilla #pajillas #petillo #sinpajillaporfavor #sinpetilloporfavor #sanspaillesvp #coco #cocotier #cocotero #nature #environnement #gogreen #zerodechet #0dechet #zerowaste #ceroresiduo #basuracero #platic #CostaRica #tortuga #tortue #turtle
SIX SWIPE PICS! Got #tommybyrnes Gibson Les Paul ready for tomorrow's @billyjoel show @msgm! I made Tommy a new yellowish #woollymammoth nut that I polished and fitted factory flush to the neck edges. I also made the skull and crossbones stamped/engraved knob tops that I painted red and yellow to match the cherry sunburst Gibson. The last embellishment was the solid mother of pearl rod cover to match the fingerboard inlays. Blessings to all at a great show tomorrow!
Petillo WAVE headstock inlaid overlay featuring the Asbury Park jetty rocks! Each piece is cut by hand. I love using dyed wood veneers for the wave crest. The last step is milling/drilling the tuning key holes.
THREE SWIPE PICS! Heat treated stamped hand engraved/dremeled fleur-de-lis knob tops mounted to black Gibson Les Paul speed knobs. I used acid to fade the tops to a satin look.
Não é fácil ser PÃE (pai e mãe). É uma loucura a rotina: tarefas, provas, consultas, problemas, conquistas, alegrias e tristezas, tudo ao mesmo tempo. Isso sem falar na rotina de marido, filho, profissional e atleta amador. Mas aí você recebe um mimo desses, feito por teu filho, afirmando que você vale mais que 250 toneladas de ouro. 😂😂😂😂 Vale lembrar que também são mães a @debitass , a @anappetillo e a @patriciapetillo . Sem vocês por perto eu não daria conta mesmo. Amo muito meus filhos (não há sentido nessa vida sem vocês), minha família. Que sortudo eu sou! 😍😍😍😍 #diadospaes #paiemae #pae #familia #petillo
TWO SWIPE PICS! My friend @burger3812 guitar player for @weeklingsmusic Taylor 615CE model acoustic guitar upgrade. The Taylor ebony rod cover with Bob Burger mother of pearl hand cut inlay was a fragile delicate job. I also did a micropolishing on the frets removing string coil dents. The 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.
FIVE SWIPE PICS! This was the first WAVE headstock inlay I made for this series of archtop guitars that represent the Jersey Shore. Summer is coming and I wanted to make a post about it! Checkout the red 3d holographic paper filled/glued into the paua abalone sea shell for an abstract look. I can do this with any color sea shell. The nut also has an abalone backing to reflect off the headstock inlay work. The red with black ledger line notes floating against the wave is a tribute to Danny Federici a member of the E Street Band who passed away in 2008. The notes are from Bruce's Sandy song. The accordian rod cover is also a tribute to Danny. Check out all the pics!
