I was excited to say the least, when my client approached me about incorporating a Charles Rennie Mackintosh theme into his Modern Dreadnought Cutaway. It was a unique challenge to create CRM inspired designs that are meaningful to my client.
In October of 2023, Dustin took possession of this Redwood/ Walnut beauty. Dustin expressed interest in a Redwood guitar that would compliment the tone of his Rosewood/Spruce guitars. Given that I live in Oregon, we thought it would be neat to go with Pacific Northwest timbers. The Redwood top was reclaimed from an old beam that lined a tunnel in Southern Oregon; it is know as “Tunnel 14 Redwood”. The Walnut used for the back and sides is the Claro species. Claro Walnut grows along the Pacific Coast of the USA.
