This amazing CUSTOMAfrican Walnut top was commissioned by guitarist Michael Lee in Hong Kong. This amazing instrument showcases a Flying (AKA Elevated) fingerboard, special Hauser bracing, onboard electronics, a swift 630mm scale along with pearl markers and a Humicase. The grain of the top resembles the skin of a gigantic prehistoric reptile. You can appreciate the tri-dimensional looking scales-like skin that displays a stunning touch to it. Indian Rosewood is extremely reliable and always delivers top notch guitars. Simply stunning !! The sound is warm and I can only start talking about the richness of her sound. This beautiful guitar allows me to express every musical phase with ease, clarity and depth. (Listen to the special demo I made for Michael in my backyard.)
The sustain and separationof voices is stunning and I can only start fantasizing about the sound she'll possess in a few months time when the sound will have broken in. As with all my guitars I indulged in making her a masterpiece of luthery selecting each piece of wood and marquetry to decorate her lines and talk of the immense love I put in each one of my creations. A truly amazing masterwork. I also want to highlight the amazing beauty of Michael's Music Room. Simply stunning. The guitar is a present from Michael's wife Vanessa and their beautiful teenage daughter. S.D.G.
