We planned to build this as a spec guitar, one without an owner in mind. We were excited to try out this reclaimed north Indian rosewood for the back and sides with a beautiful striped Sitka soundboard. When we were about halfway done, Mike called to ask if we had any guitars under construction that could be delivered more quickly. We just happened to, so he became the new owner. We've still never managed to finish a guitar without a player waiting to take it home. Sitka spruce soundboard, north Indian rosewood back and sides, African wenge binding, fretboard, bridge and rosette inlay.
