I put a lot of thought, careful planning and wood selection into the building of this single-cutaway beauty. With this in mind, I selected an extra-ordinarily figured piece of Blood Wood for the construction of the 2-piece top, to contrast as well as compliment its one-piece Brazilian mahagony body. A one-inch wide strip of pao ferro running down the middle of its 2-piece, highly figured blood wood back, provides a striking contrast. The Indian rosewood neck, with blood wood fingerboard and white pearl dot inlays, puts this guitar in a class all by itself. The white pearloid pick guard and chrome control knobs, with red abalone caps further enhance the beauty of this extra-ordinary instrument.

The deep vintage amber stain over its body, finished with ColorTone High-Gloss Professional Guitar Lacquer, gives the impression of an unusual kind of sunburst.

Buy it and become the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind Custom guitar!
