Russ Hanchin has a Zazou I built for him a couple years ago, but was looking for a second gypsy guitar, “you know, just in case”, and he wanted an alternate sound while he was at it.  He had played the Derecho owned by a fellow Virginian and asked for a full up Derecho with cedar top and Castelluccia bracing.   Curly French walnut back and sides, butternut neck, Ebano fingerboard, stainless frets and French polish finish.   The result is a guitar with a big Castelluccia voice combined with modern construction and playability that should give decades of enjoyment.
