Zemaitis SUJ-301-RUB Superior in Ruby 2 Humbucker Guitar

inc Case (Japanese made)


Great looking guitars are everywhere... but very rarely do you get a guitar that looks like a genuine antique work of art. Tony Zemaitis not only created some of the most visually stunning guitars but also catered for guitarists at every level bringing great tone to any player looking for something unique. The SUJ-301-Ruby has a stunning pearl mosaic front and a ruby finish that looks amazing.

The pearl inlay mosaic front is frankly stunning. Designed to shine and reflect beautiful light patterns under stage lights these guitars really turn heads. The neck-to-body joint is simple but effective with the full width of the neck slotting into the body. There's no heel, the neck just sits over the square corner of the cutaway single-cut design. This gives the guitar stability and great sustain.

Tony favored hand-applied finishes over spray based coating. The finish on this guitar is cellulose which has been hand-applied and polished to a brilliant satin sheen. The fret work on this guitar is very tidy, the ends are nicely rounded and the simple inlays - including Zemaitis' diamond cluster around the 12th fret - are perfectly inlaid.

Incredible Electrics

Sporting a dup of Dragon Classic pickups, which are incredibly versatile and handle the entire tonal range with great clarity and articulation, this guitar sounds incredible. Nothing about this guitar will disappoint.

Tony Zemaitis–Master Craftsman & Pioneer

Antanus Casimere Zemaitis, or Tony, was born in London 1935. As a young guitar player and, unsatisfied with the guitars of the times, decided to build his own - the first Zemaitis guitar! From then on, it was a lifelong quest to hone his craft and experiment with new designs and materials in order to improve every guitar he made – a characteristic that would follow him throughout his life.

Though he worked primarily by himself, producing just a handful of guitars every year, Tony was just as happy to work with enthusiastic amateur guitarists and even sold 'Student' grade models to those with lower budgets. No matter what grade of guitar he made though, he always produced a great playing and sounding guitar. He always used quality materials and traditional luthier techniques such as 3-piece necks and 3-piece bodies for strength and stability and only ever made glued-neck construction to ensure the best possible sound.

Famous Friends

The list of guitar players who turn to Zemaitis for uniquely styled, great sounding instruments reads like a who’s who of Innovation and tonal genius. Ronnie Wood, Joe Walsh, Don Felder, Richie Sambora, Zakk Wylde, Billy Sheehan and Doug Aldrich all sport stunning examples of Tony’s vision.

Here's what Zemaitis haver to say about the SUJ-301-Heart
