Just completed in the Fall of 2019, this was a custom build for a customer that wanted one “just like #242”, which was sold before he could purchase it. And so it is, another V style oval hole, Englemenn top, X braced and  Red Maple back and sides. It also features:

  • inlaid violin purflings around perimeter of top and back
  • Golden Age “Relic” tuners in vintage nickel finish
  • 1 3/16″ width ebony nut
  • Shop made ebony adjustable bridge/saddle
  • Adjustable truss rod and 3 piece laminate neck construction
  • Soft “V” neck profile
  • 10″ Radiused, “clean” fingerboard with side markers
  • Semi-gloss nitro lacquer finish
  • Hardshell case
  • Full lifetime warranty

Thank You, Don. Its been a great experience working with you from start to finish”   – Marvin Klikunas, owner, Oct. 25 2019
