A beautiful guitar worthy of a great player! Handcrafted with a premium East Indian rosewood back and sides and a bookmatched top of select quartersawn Sitka spruce.
Its smaller 000 body size and short 24.9 scale help produce delicate, balanced tones. The rosette and soundboard are inlaid with herringbone wood marquetry, and the body is bound with grained ivoroid. An ebony fingerboard features a snowflake pattern in abalone pearl. Eric''s signature is inlaid in mother-of-pearl between the 19th and 20th frets. Tastefully appointed with hand-beveled tortoise pickguard, nickel-plated open-geared machines equipped with unique butterbean knobs. Each guitar bears an interior label, individually numbered in sequence.
