A BEAUTY ALL ITS OWN!

S2387 GA35 NAT_FC4_DavdiZaharik_011017This GA-35 is certainly one of our most unique creations made to date! This custom order is from a guitar lover in British Columbia who asked for a standard GA-35 (chambered mahogany body with carved top) using extraordinary figured wood. This one incorporates a Buckeye Burl top and headstock with highly figured mahogany body and neck, black binding, gold hardware, and ebony fingerboard, tuning knobs and volume/tone knobs. We ordered the slab and cut and filled it specifically for this instrument.
