This guitar was built to the specifications of the customer, the original design came form a small post it note that the customer had drawn. We worked together on the final full-scale drawing to come up with the eventual design.

The guitar is built from a Zebrano through neck with three Paduke inserts, the wings of the main section of the body where made from Wenge and a cap of Purple Heart with Paduke in the center section.

The design was an angled through neck with the purple heart cap carved back to revel the Wenge underneath to create the jagged look of the instrument.
