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.
The back and sides of this guitar are made with Flamewood. It is a true Rosewood originating from Laos, SE Asia. Characteristics are hard, dense, and displays a beautiful chatoyance. This wood is similar to Cocobolo but much harder to find. To complement straight quartersawn grain of the Flamewood, I have selected a master grade Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top. Available, please inquire.
