Danilo Aceto Zumbo – bonzomusic guitars – Contacts and who I am


Danilo Aceto Zumbo

Hand-making, playing music, writing

means to me communicating feelings and emotions


Italian, born in 1969. Guitar maker and musician.


After several years of training in the workshop of Germano Fusco (Rome, Italy) and Benoit Melle-Stef (Brussels, Belgium), I arranged my own workshop in Rome, in my loft.

The art of luthiery needs many years of study, practice, experiments, mistakes and choices.

I decided to focus on a little number of instruments designed and realized exclusively by me, situated out of the mainstreaming.

They are built following my taste and research on materials and techniques for a unique sound:

  • Electric and Electroacoustic guitars;
  • Slide guitars, both acoustic (Weissenborn-style) and electric;
  • Acoustic guitars;
  • Bass guitars, both fretless and fretted.

Since I work alone in my workshop, I prefer to focus on mature choices and well-experimented techniques rather than disperse my energies on uncertain projects.

I make everything by hand, including pickups.

This is me in my workshop in Rome, Italy.
