1984 Zemaitis Metal Front Deluxe


1984 Zemaitis Metal Front Deluxe – 25 year old creation by Tony Zemaitis, completed in 1984. The guitar went back to Tony in 1997 and was inspected internally and externally and resold. It is in near perfect condition and has superb provenance.

24 fret model, double John Birch humbuckers, rosewood fingerboard and ebony headstock overlay, zero playwear to the frets and fingerboard, handmade bridge and tailpiece, non personalized truss rod cover, all engraving by Danny O’Brien. The guitar was delivered by Tony into the safekeeping of Keith Smart the Zemaitis Owners club president, Keith produced the Union Jack document you see here. The image of Tony on the left was taken by Keith on July 22nd 2000 so basically right at the very end of Tony’s career. The other fine gentleman in the various photo’s is none other than Danny O’Brien, what a fine looking fellow he is. It really doesn’t get any better than this, a super clean Zemaitis metal front in the company of Tony and Danny, there is no better provenance, a superb opportunity. Includes a Harptone plush lined case with croc style black tolex.
