Description

 

Zemaitis Metal Front Guitar

 

This Zemaitis Metal Front Guitar is 100% handmade by our highly skilled craftsman! 

 

Tony Zemaitis originally hit upon the idea of using metal fronts on his electric guitars to suppress noise, and the concept soon evolved to become a stylistic signature for the U.K. builder—especially once engraving was added. Dual humbucker, custom engraved Original Zemaitis Metal Front Guitar was from Zemaitis Custom Shop. And this trend continued as Zemaitis introduced mosaic shell tops on his guitars (obviously not for noise purposes), and the result of his excellent craftsmanship and talent for creating what amounted to functional art pieces made Tony the custom builder of choice for many top-name players of the ’70s and ’80s. 


This Zemaitis Metal Front is the definition of Zemaitis's slogan "art with strings". But they take it to a place where even the pickiest single-cut guitar players can't argue the fast and smooth playability and classic rock tone from the DiMarzio PAF humbuckers. This is a serious guitar for those looking for a rare and beautiful single-cut solidbody masterpiece from one of the most unique custom shops in the world.

 The Zemaitis Story


  

Zemaitis’s founder, Tony Zemaitis, took a liking to playing guitar in the 1950’s but was unable to get his hands on one suitable for playing. So, using what he had learned as a cabinet maker and woodworking apprentice, he poked and prodded at a friend’s classical guitar, took some measurements, and then the young Tony Zemaitis took off to build his own design so he’d have something to play. Gotta love that D.I.Y. spirit.


Over time, Tony made more and more guitars, in the early days selling them to friends for the cost of materials so he could fund his next design experiment. The great sound of his handcrafted guitars caught the attention of local players in the folk and blues scene, and before long Tony was making a healthy income from his creations. By 1965, Tony Zemaitis took the plunge and became a full-time luthier.


There’s no shortage of famous guitarists playing Zemaitis guitars. Keith Richards plays an offbeat 5-string Macabre model in the Scorsese film Shine a Light. You can see one of the MF “Tribal Tattoo” models in action on the Journey-Live in Manila DVD. And Eric Clapton auctioned off a beloved Zemaitis “Ivan the Terrible” 12-string acoustic for charity, fetching £130,000. Other famous Zemaitis players include Johnny Winter, Bruce Springsteen, James Hetfield, and George Harrison.
