Stephen Marchione (Marchione Guitars)

Builder

Introducing Marchione Guitars, based in Houston, Texas. The luthier Stephen Marchione's creations are highly acclaimed by top artists around the world for their unique design and rich, perfect tone. In particular, the archtop guitars, which Stephen says he is aiming to make into Ferraris, are the pinnacle of high-end guitars in terms of sophisticated acoustic sound, playability, and beauty.

KTS user - Stephen Marchione

KTS is honored to have been able to provide our titanium parts for the Ferrari. Since the development of the titanium saddles, we had been hoping that they would be used on such high-end guitars. One day, we were surprised to see a zoomed-in photo of the bridge of the new model on their website. It was clearly equipped with a titanium saddle, which was obviously made by us. I immediately inquired about it, and was told that our TOM saddle PR-05 was installed on the bridge made by Gotoh. It seems that the Japanese staff at the workshop recommended it to him.

Since then, we have been meeting with Stephen, the luthier, every year at the NAMM Show, and a few years later, we made a neck plate with the original Marchione logo for his bolt on type guitars.

"I use KTS saddles to bring out more fat rich tone from my guitars. They help any fine instrument ring and sing without an unnecessary bling!"

KTS Titanium saddles are a simple way to significantly improve the tone of your guitar. I really like your product and plan to use more KTS saddles for my next batch of Marchione Semi-Hollow Body guitars." ―Stephen Marchione
