shows off a DuncanAfrica model
with a Broken Road inlay.
Luthier Jay Duncan came up with
his “Broken Road” inlay design
during the formative years of his
charity, DuncanAfrica. He was living
in Africa, bored and sick with the
flu at the time, when inspiration hit.
“I thought to myself, ‘I’m going to
make a fancy guitar.’” He used koa,
mugavu, maple, cow bone, and
ebony to create the inlay pattern
that lines the headstock, rosewood
neck, and fretboard of this Selah
OM-CR from the Suubi series.
