  • Flame Maple and European Spruce
  • SOLD

Product Description

An absolutely phenominal instrument, 12-fret 000 body with flamed maple back and sides and master grade European spruce top, by John Slobod. True to an early Martin 000, it's a slotted peghead with curved sides and ebony pyramid bridge. It has "28" style appointments like herringbone purfling and ivoroid binding with the addition of binding around the fretboard. Tuners are individual Waverlies with the metal lima-bean buttons, the pins are custom designed Circa "mushroom" style out of bone. The impetus for building this guitar is the mention in Mike Longworth's book of one maple 000 made in 1906. It's never showed up, and I've been especially curious about it ever since (about 35 years!)
