This particular instrument has a checkered history:

  • It is the second instrument we built when we started our "guitar building hobby"
  • It is a handmade Sonoran SB LP Single Cutaway with edge binding on the top plate, and it used a ready-made body from China with our own handmade neck
  • Originally this instrument was made with a mahogany set neck but after several months of use the neck twisted and could not be corrected
  • Therefore, this neck was cut off for expediency and replaced with a bolt-on Maple neck
  • However, we were never happy with the bolt-on neck modification so this year we decided to revert to a set neck, but in Maple rather than Mahogany
  • The neck was also reworked to make it thinner
  • Two detail photos, below, show the neck attachment area and the filled-in bolt-on screw holes are visible on one
  • Therefore, this reworked instrument is being made available at a particularly low price even though it has an excellent tone, sustain and action comparable to our regular offerings.

  • 8 pounds 14 ounces.
