|This instrument was custom ordered to be over the top in appointments and function in a smaller size.
This 16” guitar features premium materials throughout, from the Englemann Spruce top, beautifully figured Maple back, sides and neck, to the fine grained Ebony used for the headstock overlays, fingerboard, and bridge.
The bridge is patterned after the bridge on the one and only “Tear Drop” guitar so prominently featured in the Scott Chinery collection. The hand made tailpiece was exquisitely hand engraved by David Giulietti, and gold plated to match the deco Grover Imperial machines. The Bartiolini hum canceling jazz pickup and thumbwheel controls on the underside edge of the pickguard provide and unobtrusive solution to great sound reinforcement.
This guitar is truly greater than the sum of all its wonderful parts.
