Technical Information: This is a new ES, with Carpathian Spruce top, Laotian Black and White Ebony back and sides, Ebony binding, back and front headstock overlay, fingerboard and bridge, bone pins, saddle and nut (1 3/4), soundport on side.
Bob Singer's Notes: This is one of the hardest woods to find, very rare and beautiful. There are no two sets alike. The bookmatching on the back is incredible. This has the same density and sound of East Indian Rosewood. The sound is evident with Aaron's video above. I invited Chris to the Memphis Acoustic Guitar Festival. I did not know him before that, but he was very highly recommended. Chris's guitars are in some of the highest boutique stores in America. This guitar is a real treasure!
While the inlays are spectacular, this is the first guitar that I've shown with the back showing.
The inlay is another one of Craig Lavin's creations.
