Michael, i don't think it's a dellarte, all the labels are there, and the guitar is pretty beat up, isn't the hommage fairly recent?
One of the nicest guitars I've ever played was Rodrigo Shopis' Favino style guitar. I believe that Samson played it at Birdland. This guitar is awesome and has real mojo.

What I Play:
A Cedar topped Selmer style I made with which I became enamored because its sound reminds me of that youtube clip of Lollo Meier playing China Boy. (If you've never heard of Lollo Meier - check his work out - he focuses on the traditional QHCF style and his playing is so tasteful - and if you know what guitar he's playing - please tell me. I'm guessing it's a Joseph DiMauro Sr. based on the body outline, neck construction & headstock, but I thought Joseph Sr.'s petit bouches had those slightly triangular soundholes. Can anyone solve this mystery?
Best sounding guitar I've played:
Neil's Busato is definitely up there - a friend Jason's Busato is too - I've never heard them side by side.
