This double-cutaway guitar is an unusual blend of two classic styles. The deep vintage amber stain over the 2-piece Zebra Wood top and one-piece Obeche body, complimented by a mint green pick guard, gives the Hybrid 1 and extra-ordinary visual appeal. The Indian rosewood neck has a pao ferro fingerboard, inlaid with abalone dots. All these features, plus the chrome hardware, which include control knobs with abalone caps, further enhance its beauty.

If you are searching for a one-of-a-kind Custom guitar, Look no further!
