Deluxe Artist Natural/Cocobolo

$3,700.00 $3,200.00

 

This luxurious Artist Custom six features an awesome clearly defined figured maple top. We liked it so much we decided to let it stand on its own and finish in clear lacquer and clad it in elegant cocobolo binding.  The body and neck were made from the same piece of Honduran Mahogany and match completely.   The Cocobolo fretboard was selected from our private stock and has figured maple binding and gold and white mother or pearl inlays. The matching cocobolo headstock has contrasting figured maple binding and our unique floating truss rod cover made from matching cocobolo and maple.

Electronics are rounded out with a set of classic Sheptone PAF type AB custom pickups w gold covers. Sheptone wraps this set using 1959 spec 42 enamel wire and alnico 5 magnets. 8k neck/8.5 k bridge.

It has a switchcraft three way switch nestled inside an electronics cavity fully shielded with copper foil for noise free operation. The electronics cover is a lavish solid piece cocobolo and is secured with threaded machine screws and threaded inserts so they won’t ever strip.  A Tone Pros wrap around bridge with locking studs and smooth turning nickel Hipshot tuners is capped off with gold Schaller strap locks to keep it secure.

This guitar ships with a plush lined locking case.
