Austin came to us with a unique challenge: to transform an especially sentimental piece of salvaged ancient kauri he and his father had purchased years ago into a rock and roll machine. Together, we selected a stunning salvaged redwood top to complement the elegant, chambered kauri body. We matched a C shape torrified birdseye maple neck and sustainably sourced ebony fretboard for effortless playability and a bright, snappy tone. SniderBorn™ Hand-Wound Hot Humbucker pickups turn that tone up to 11, and a TonePros™ Tune-O-Matic bridge and tailpiece help every note ring true, with perfect intonation and near-endless sustain. The rock-ready result is a masterwork, as beautiful perched on its stand as it is snarling in Austin's hands.
