Figured Macassar Ebony B&S, Spruce Top

Superb Cutaway, Model MEIS-3

Allow me to introduce one of the last great Masterpiece of 2012. As the year is slowly coming to an end, this amazing Macassar Ebony cutaway decided to crown our workshop by bringing about all the beauty, powerful sound and playability that this South East Asian species is known for and guitarists dreams about. Macassar Ebony has always been one of my favorite tonewoods since I first used it some 8 years ago -late 2004-. This amazing set was spotted by one of my best wood suppliers in South East Asia. Sulawesi is one of the largest Islands in the world. The set was spotted in late July 2012. 3 weeks later, I had the set in my workshop. It is simply spectacular. It was extracted from a tree that hand fallen after a major Typhoon over 13 years ago. Some of the most spectacular woods are harvested in Sulawesi. The tap tone was perfect and I knew that the resulting guitar would sing like a bird. Gorgeously tight grain and a figure seldom seen made me start dreaming of the fabulous guitar I would build with her from the very beginning of the project. I Decided to use a splendid set of Alpine Spruce for the top simply because I knew that the contrast between the "pure, snowy white" of the Alpine species would contrast to perfection with the wild, ferocious figure of the Indonesian back and sides. I was right not only because she looks great but also because the amazing combination of woods brings about an instrument that possesses the most amazing bass with a punch and sustain that is hard to be put into words. Spruce passes its marvelous characteristics of perfect separation of voices to the instrument. She's got power and the most amazing crystal clear trebles. There is not an inch on this beauty that will not mean an immense pleasure to your eyes. Everything from the splendid Handmade marquetry and rosette, the matching bridge, armrest, bindings and violin tie… the myriad details that bring her to life will make you treasure this masterpiece of nature and luthery as she deserves. You will fall in love with the marvels that human craftsmanship can do when the best of nature is put in the right hands. I baptized her "Typhoon guitar" because we could not have built this beauty should have Sulawesi Island not have been hit by a Pacific monster some 13 years ago… S.D.G.
