The Natural Wonder is Finished!

I finished making “The Natural Wonder” this week, the guitar featured in some of my previous articles.
I’m very proud of it and its owner Eric Weingrad of the Pittsburg band TheCause will be picking it up this week.

Here’s how I describe it

This guitar glows with the natural beauty of the wood. Figured maple and mahogany join together to create an organic yet striking form. The figured grain cascades like a waterfall over the thick maple’s curved edge.
Its warm full background tone is tipped with clear bright highs. Custom made Lindy Fralin high-output humbuckers and locking Sperzel tuning machines. Volume and blend pots, 3-way switch and mini phase switch complete the electronics. Dial up the blend pot in phase mode to create a richer, thicker phase tone than traditionally possible. The figured maple pickup mounting rings add a sophisticated sculptural touch.
