This guitar was crafted especially to be a canvass for the nationally acclaimed artist, Lane Kendrick.  The top is Alaskan Sitka Spruce and has special forward shifted X-bracing to produce awesome tone.  Back and sides are some gorgeous African Bubinga.  The neck is Paradise Black Walnut with an overlay of Maple / Brazilian Rosewood on the headstock.  And if that isn't enough beautiful wood......the fretboard and bridge are some, to die for, Macassar Ebony.  Frets are extra hard gold colored alloy.

All solid woods, as this guitar is played and as the wood ages........because it is built with a labor of love, it will grow sweeter.




Yes we do have a supply of Brazilian Rosewood considered the absolute ultimate in back and sides wood.  If you are unfamiliar with it, the tone is glass like.  Unfortunately it has been on the Cites list for many years so supplys are limited to what is in the states.  If Brazillian is your choice we've got it among many other great woods.  E-mail (or call) us to see if we can build the guitar of your dreams or we may have one in stock thats just for you.
