Texas-based Marchione Guitars, who have been our booth neighbors at NAMM the past couple of years, were once again showing a range of some of Stephen Marchione’s premium handcrafted instruments, and filling the air in our little corner of the hall with sweet music played by a succession of fine players.

Above, guitarist Michael Severson, who in recent months has toured with the highly respected Robert Glasper Experiment (and whose previous credits include work with Meshell Ndegocello, Bilal, and others), gives us a taste of the Marchione Italian spruce and Brazilian Rosewood OMC, built in the traditional Spanish method.
