Working musicians! People that are out there actually doing it! Aperio necks and bodies are as good as any you will find anywhere. They are priced reasonably for working musicians and are for those that simply need great instruments to play. They have excellent tone and build characteristics. The truss rods adjust the neck easily and they are dual acting to the degree necessary with the minimum of wood removal, unlike others with masses of steel embedded in the neck. If you are looking for wall art or a guitar you are afraid to scratch, then Aperio may not be for you. If you play hard we are it! Do what Joe Bonamassa does and take your ’59 Gibson out on tour and play it!
