David Antony Reid RealWood VaultBack
This stunning acoustic from UK-based luthier David Antony Reid features a curved back made of alternating flamed Spanish walnut and English cherry. The strips of wood, called staves, are crucial for creating the curved back, a la barrel construction. The top is cross-silked Sitka spruce, the neck is mahogany with purpleheart, and the fretboard is ebony.
