The Mandarin

  • "The Mandarin." This custom instrument was created for David, AZ, and features original woodburned and handpainted artwork and design, with handcarved headstock, bridge saddle, tailpiece, and neck heel. Also present are a handcrafted highly figured flamed maple neck, abalone inlays, abalone inset knurled chrome control knobs, handcrafted faceted control and jack plates, bone nut and bridge, and a chrome mini humbucker.

    This was a wonderfully intense project, and it brings me great joy knowing it will be cherished when it arrives in its new home out west!  :)
