The Monarch

Base Price: $15,000.00

Regal without pretension, the Monarch rises to the challenge as the next guitar in the Buscarino lineage. A testament to the old traditions that have been handed down from master to apprentice for centuries, the Monarch holds up to its Kingly name with master craftsmanship and an attention to detail that is unrivaled. All Buscarino Guitars are made to the same exacting standard and the Monarch is no exception. Mother of Pearl Block Inlays, Purfled F-holes and a stunning keystone Inlay on the Headstock go a long way to helping this model stand out from the competition and move to the head of the pack. There are numerous options and color choices available to customize the guitar to your liking and truly make this an instrument fit for a king.
