"The Zucali Jazzabella model is a one of a kind nylon string jazz guitar. It sounds amazingly natural plugged in, and also feels great in the hands. I had a wonderful time using the Jazzabella to jam with a Gypsy Jazz band at a recent guitar festival in Europe. As well, the guitar looks amazing ... it was certainly the talk of the show; a perfect combination of a jazz and nylon construction. Bravo Daniel on an amazing new design and idea for guitars. I guarantee that you'll love playing this guitar!"

Years ago I was asked if I would dare to build an archtop jazz guitar with nylon strings. After careful consideration and many conversations with colleagues, I decided on this project.
Due to the low self-resonances, the Jazzabella works very well, even at high volumes and in a band context. With the unusually cleanly differentiated frequency spectrum and the easy response, it is very present and also very assertive without drowning out the musician colleagues.

"Obwohl die schöne Jazzabella zärtlich in Nylon erscheint, hat sie so richtig viel Wumps und kann auch mal sehr laut werden. Mit ihr zu spielen ist ein Traum. Differenzierter Klang, seidige Höhen und satte, knackige Bässe. Und wie es sich auch für einen guten Charakter gehört, direkt und ehrlich! Einmal angefangen möchte man Stunden mit ihr verbringen und sie nie wieder verlassen."

Translation of Quote by Mario Maidus:

“Although the beautiful Jazzabella appears tenderly in nylon, she has a lot of pumps and can get very loud. Playing with her is a dream. Differentiated sound, silky highs and rich, crisp basses. And as it should be for a good character, direct and honest! Once you start, you want to spend hours with her and never leave her again.”
