For the last 28 years, Toru Nittono has worked
with a venerable list of heavyweights. He does
repairs and makes guitars under his own name
at his Van Nuys workshop. Tom Petty, Bruce
Springsteen, John Pisano, Ted Greene, Robben
Ford, Coco Montoya, John Sykes and Carlos
Santana have all either owned one of Nittono’s
custom-made creations, or relied upon his
repair skills. Nittono’s Model T offers a nice
spin on classic T-style guitars; his Jazz Electric
Nylon Model incorporates the same classic
styling with elegant archtop appointments.
Model-T Jazz Nylon semi-hollowbody with spruce top, mahogany body, Nittono’s custom preamp and
custom neck shape requested by Santana.
