2001 Dave Of England Zemaitis Heart Hole Acoustic #4
One of the earliest Dave of England Acoustic guitars, made using the Tony Zemaitis Jig #8 also using a genuine Tony Zemaitis label.
On the retirement of Tony Zemaitis he gave all of his jigs to Dave Brewis, AKA “Dave of England” & “The Keeper of The Jigs”. Tony also
handed over many plans,timber, tools & wood stain, consequently, Dave Brewis & Kevin Parsons set about continuing the legacy of Tony
Zemaitis. You can see much more of Daves work here http://daveofengland.co.uk/
Acoustic #1 is the recreation of the famed Tony Zemaitis 12 string as used by Jimi Hendrix, we have this guitar in stock also, acoustic #2 was also created from jig #8, it is the sister guitar to our six string heart hole, #2 was tried out by Ron Wood but was then taken by Alan Rogan to be used by Dhani Harrison on the “Concert for Gerorge” to celebrate the life of George Harrison. (see images)
This all leads us to our current guitar Acoustic #4, a very large bodied heart hole six string acoustic, played & approved by Tony Zemaitis with original Zemaitis label, finished with Tony’s own red stain. The graduated pearl dot inlays was the idea of Ron Wood & employed on this guitar, the guitar is in perfect original condition with original letters from Dave Brewis & original hard-shell case.
