Gregory Wanamaker's 00 Acoustic
Wanamaker his acoustic in fall 2010 under the guidance of Dave Nichols of Custom Pearl Inlay. It's modeled after a Martin 00 model with a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and ebony fretboard. The abalone inlay was cut by hand and set himself. He says, "The guitar has a beautifully rich sounding low and middle range and is terrific for noodling and songwriting. It’s the first and only instrument I built to date, but it’s the only acoustic guitar I play now."
