The first time I met Franco Morone was several years ago at an intimate house concert in Southern California. I still remember my heart pounding at the close of his first melody. After which we were acoustically transported to another world, filled with romance and history all with intricate layers of emotion woven between each melody.
Several years later Franco played a larger concert in the Seattle area, at which he offered to play one of my guitars. I was exhilarated to hear a master of the acoustic guitar playing one of my creations.
If that wasn’t excitement enough, after the concert, Franco commissioned me to make a personalized guitar for him. Once again, I stood there in disbelief. It's been years since that moment and the result of our relationship is a truly customized guitar to his specifications - The Franco Morone Signature Series Guitar.
It has been such a blessing having Franco involved with Schenk Guitars. He has supported me individually, my guitars and the company as a whole. It is a great honor to have my name associated with this master of the acoustic guitar.
Franco Morone is a must-have in your playlist - truly one of the world’s best. Franco has a wonderful collection of albums including Celtic, Traditional, Bluesy and Italian Fingerstyle arrangements that can be purchased here. The appointments on his guitar are designed to intensify the flavor of his melody and compliment his musical poetry.
