The Montreal Guitar Show is this weekend and the weather is BEAUTIFUL!!! We’ve brought a couple of unique instruments this year. On the left is a custom ABZ4 in a sandblasted Black finish with – yes – a pickguard. This bass is for our friend Todd Kerns currently on tour with Slash. Side note, the new Slash album is currently getting the most play on my ipod. I just makes me want to grab my guitar and play!
The C1 guitar has tort inlays that we cast inhouse. They match the tort pickguard perfectly. The ABII is the first with a Ziricote top and wenge neck. What a combination! The tone is firm and snappy with the acoustic-like “air” quality you’d expect from an ABII. The ABIa has a caramel colored Arbutus burl top with a simple but elegant 50’s style burst and a birdseye maple fingerboard.
This year we’ve got video demos playing front and center. Thanks to Lee Sklar and Toto, Or Lubianiker and Jack Semple.
