number83

This guitar follows on from the “electric/ acoustic” concept of 81 0208 and was made to David Stephen’s specifications. The guitar is made of swietenia mahogany using the construction method first used 18 years ago on a semi-solid silver ash 12 string and used also on successive semi-solids that have the internal chambering bandsawn before the gluing on of the top and back. The top on this instrument is highly figured quilted maple with herringbone and w-b-w ivoroid binding and binding was also used on the front, back, neck and headstock. A WAS 5 pickup system is used and 18:1 Grover machine heads fitted.
