Todd Cambio the genius behind Fraulini Guitars makes amazing guitars! I know first-hand because I have played them .. but don’t take my word for it …. they are the choice of several of the top blues and traditional performers in the country today including Paul Geremia,Alvin Youngblood Hart, Ari Eisinger, John Miller, Frank Basile, Bill Dillof and others.
Todd’s guitars are based on the classic designs of early twentieth century builders such as; Oscar Schmidt, Lyon & Healy, Larson Brothers, Regal and Tonk Brothers. Todd asked me to create a large poster that looked like a page out of a 1920s Sears Roebuck catalog that he could send to customers and guitar shops that sell sell his instruments. After studying some 1920s Sears Catalogs I took the photos that he provided into photoshop and massaged them into line-art images that captured that old Sears catalog look. I also used a couple of distressed fonts to mimic the printing quality of that time period.
