74: – 74 0505 – “RGac-59″ (2005)

number74

Same as No. 69, but with spruce top and blackwood back and sides, made for Leigh Mullen, Roper River, on the Gulf of Carpentaria, NT. The instrument was sent by mail to Darwin and including shipping costs and insurance, cost $1750.00. Before shipping, the guitar lived inside for some 7-10 days and showed no movement in the timber or any tendency to go out of tune. This guitar was fitted with Sid West’s new WAS3 pickup system. On completion, the guitar was shown to a number of customers and generated a number of orders. From my point of view, this guitar has to be the best acoustic made to date! There is much to be said for not trying to reinvent the wheel.
