John Buscarino now makes only archtop guitars. My experience is he is not helpful with information on the solid bodies he used to make.

the end of Nova

: John Buscarino now makes only archtop guitars. My experience is he is not helpful with information on the solid bodies he used to make.

The reason for this is legal, more than anything else.

John was world-reknowned for his patented method of joining the neck to the body. It was so sturdy that a fully-stringed solid body Nova with his neck design, could still be played even with all four screws removed from the joint.
In the early nineties, a group of Japanese businessmen bought Nova from John simply to get at that patent. Afterwards, I believe they closed the company and sold the name. I don't know if the Nova guitars the other poster mentioned in the Sears catalogue are the end result, but they may be.

John simply cannot discuss his solid body efforts with anyone due to his contractual obligations. Its a great shame, because I own one of his signature Stratocasters, and I would like to have commissioned a Buscarino SG or Les Paul replica to go with it. His Strat brought out skill I didn't know that I had.

regarding nova

So, based on this nova guitar issue, is the moral, that nova guitars just suck, or do they have hope. I have one, and if it is crap, then do you have any suggestions on a good beginner guitar or can i slide with the nova? thanks

I have a nova solid body model 2600 it's ok for a beginner but I would like to know more about it
I personally think a Fender squier would have been a better choice

Re: NOVA Electric Guitars

I have been searching the internet for info on Nova and this is what I found:
Luthier John Buscarino founded the Nova Guitar Company in 1981, and produced a number of high quality solid body electric guitars under that logo before changing to his current trademark of Buscarino.

I have 2 Nova Guitars. They are nice and play well.

John Buscarino made the original guitars. I have one from 1987. It plays like a dream. John pieced me another one together about 2 years ago from some spare parts he had lying around. Both guitars are of a modified strat design. The first Strat he built for me back in 1987 has a 24 fret neck and is purplish in color (the actual color is blue pearl or red).. Mine was the first ever to have this color. It became a very popular color over in the orient, I understand. It has emg battery powered pickups. What a screamer.

Both guitars are well built. The last one (white body) cost me about 2k for John to put it together. He really isn't interested in building solid body guitars anymore. The money, undoubetly, is in arc top guitars. I consider myself luck as hell to have these guitars.

The guitars make after John sold Nova may indeed suck for all I know. What I do know is that John builds quality shit.

If you have the chance to buy one of the guitars originally made by Jophn, I would snag it. I think that it will be worth some serious money someday.

I HAVE ONE

I HAVE ONE

Can anyone tell me the make and model?

Photos are at: http://www.facebook.com/chuckatbelloisebrothers

It is a set-in neck. not through body neck. The headstock is thin. i thought the finish might have been stripped to but the mohagony is so beautiful I don't see how a gtr company could paint over it. also, from what I can see the neck has the original finish and the grain of this maple is really nice... Whats weird, the quality of the body, neck. frets is of a custom quality, but the pickup and tuners are cheap (maybe or maybe not original)??

hello Please

Please'm a Professional guitarist need to know or contact the manufacturer of Electric Guitars Nova because I'm fanatical with them and their sound I have one since I started playing and would be an honor to be contacted to get to know the teachers who created them.

i ve a tele with a nova

i ve a tele with a nova neck, can anyone tell me how to tell if its from sears or by Buscarino, its blonde with a white pic guard, im just a beginner but it feels nice to play, I have strats and les pauls, and godins and squires (hardtail indo) and picked this one up for 40 bucks dirty, strings missing, pic ups loose, I taught myself how to do set ups, cleaned this bithch up with new ernie ball strings, every thing works,sounds good and feels not bad with a V style neck, how can I tell if its a sears crapper or johns guitar. nova logo on neck only

Buscarino Nova

I owned a Buscarino Nova for three years. Possibly the best made electric guitar I have ever owned. Sold it to buy a Benedetto archtop. I have searched online for 8 years to see if a subsequent owner is/would put it up for sale so I could buy it back. if you get one - keep it.
