giovanni_stjames Huge thanks to @davepetillo for my absolutely amazing custom stratocaster! This guitar is quickly becoming one of my favorites and I liked it so much I recorded a solo with it the day I picked it up! Be sure to check out my band @commonwealthofficial_ and catch us with let live, rise against, and killswitch engage july 26th at the stone pony summerstage in asbury! Thanks again dave! #davidpetillo #giovannistjames #guitar #emgpickups #emg #solo #commonwealth #guiarist #metal #thanks #celticknobs #red #passion #black #spreadthewealth 6d

davepetillo This is for the New Jersey-based performer/songwriter/guitar player and veteran of the Jersey Shore, Eddie Testa's son Giovanni Testa, aka Giovanni St. James (G.S.J). We really souped up his Fender Squier Stratocaster Bullet Series guitar. We upgraded it with a black-white-black pickguard and EMG pickups. I added a red button kill switch in the center of the knob setup for intermittent sounds to add to his creativity in his music. The kill switch has a red style doomsday switch look to it and reminds me of a James Bond type button switch that the bad guy lingers his finger over to detonate a bomb somewhere in the world in the movie. I wanted to then match the red of the switch and also make something that has meaning to Giovanni St. James. So I went ahead and engraved Celtic knots on each of the Gibson Les Paul speed knobs. The Celtic design has religious symbolism for St. James and personal meaning to the bonds of the Testa family. The red inside the knot is a metal dye that bonded to the brushed nickel knob tops and matching the switch. Check out Giovanni's band Common Wealth around the Jersey Shore this summer! #petillo #petilloguitars #philpetillo #davepetillo #luthier #guitarmaker #guitarbuilder #eddietesta #giovannitesta #giovannistjames #commonwealth #gibsonlespaul #speedknobs #fendersquire #stratocaster #carved #engraved #celticknot #celtic #red #killswitch #emgpickups #jamesbond 1w
