As its name implies, this stunning double-cutaway guitar is a red-hot blues machine. Its beautifully hand-carved Korina (African Limba) body is stained a transparent burnt cinnamon colour which shows off the attractive grain pattern to good advantage, while its deep cream coloured pick guard further enhances its appearance. 

You can see and hear this beauty at the 2012 Montreal Guitar Show!
