With one eye on sustainability and the other on the time honored history of luthiery, this guitar is built with salvaged and reclaimed wood.

1 piece pine slab body (wood species may vary occasionally due to availability of wood)

Solid Maple Neck, normally quarter sawn honoring the 1950's style Fender guitars (wood species may vary occasionally due to availability of wood. Also using Oak, Hickory Rosewood and Mahogany)
