Our goal at Guitars ‘n Jazz is to find you the best possible instrument that not only matches your personal requirements and play-style, but is also a guitar that you enjoy playing and look forward to picking up.

We strive to price our instruments as competitively as possible in order to give our customers the best possible value for their dollar. And as a guitarist myself I would never sell an instrument that didn’t live up to my own high standards and expectations.

All of our instruments are thoroughly inspected, tested, professionally set up, and carefully packed for shipment. And all instruments are sold with our 72 hour satisfaction guarantee.

We encourage you to call us for the best price possible. We routinely have demos, closeouts, blemishes, and used instruments available for purchase. And if you happen to find a lower price please let us know.

And please keep in mind that it’s difficult comparing various instruments on the Internet. Since many of our guitars come standard with upgraded woods and tone controls shopping by price alone won’t tell the whole story.

Since our inventory changes so frequently it’s best to call us to find all of your available options. With over 500 archtops in stock you can be assured that we have unbelievable guitars to fit any budget.

Product Description

*S O L D*

The Buscarino Monarch follows in the tradition of the master handing down years of perfected methods and designs to his apprentice. Crowning this guitar is a large Benedetto-style headstock with mitered perflings and pinstripe-enhanced binding. The F-holes are fully bound and also trimmed with mitered pinstripe perflings. Only the finest quartersawn seasoned instrument woods are used in it’s construction, and as with every archtop guitar in the Buscarino lineage, the MONARCH is meticulously assembled and tuned. The Monarch headstock face is constructed from solid ebony with a beautifully ornate inlay which was originally designed for John Buscarino by Robert Benedetto, Master archtop builder. Comes standard with full binding and intricately mitered perflings.
The Monarch comes standard with a one piece solid ebony 3/16″ thick Pickguard. The compact design of this pickguard does not restrict the “F” holes as to allow the sound to freely transfer from the body. This is the best Buscarino Monarch that we have ever seen coming into the shop. Monarch Base Price: $12,000.00
