Tagliare—The Italian word for “carve.”

The Tagliare ‘Guitars For Vets’ is Dean Zelinsky’s personal take on making a traditional dual-humbucker guitar with something extra special. The unique body carve and narrowed waist cut creates a style that sets it apart from a sea of S-Style Guitars. The body is made from select Alder creating a light, yet better sustaining guitar…and yields the best overall tone. This guitar is very comfortable with weight averaging 7.5 lbs.

The Tagliare ‘Guitars For Vets’ features a full 22-fret maple neck with a rich rosewood fingerboard. The two-post floating tremolo system to allow for knife-edge accuracy and great tremolo action. Nickel tuners are a standard feature, along with TUSQ nuts and string retainers, allow for maximum sustain and assure you stay in tune.

The Z-Glide Reduced Friction Neck (patented) gives players a feel that cannot be achieved by any other guitar. The precision engraving reduces surface area thus reducing friction between the hand and the guitar neck. Your hand only comes in contact with 30% of the necks surface…the rest is air. Players instantly notice the improved playability and feel. Designed by Dean Zelinsky this patent pending concept is exclusive to Dean Zelinsky Private Label Guitars.

The Dean Zelinsky Private Label Humbucking Pickups are higher output but designed to still achieve those clean warm tones and be very articulate in the lower register. Controls are a master volume and master tone with a coil tap for both pickups.

Tagliare necks are made of Canadian Rock Maple with Dean Zelinsky’s new soft ‘C’ profile. These necks are designed with Dean Zelinsky’s nearly four decades of experience of making guitars players love to play.

Tagliare ‘Guitars For Vets’ have hard Graphite nuts, Graphite String Retainer and a Two-Post Trem; these guitars stay in tune. Headstocks feature a Dean Zelinsky’s signature logo in a bright nickel finish.
