Chimaera Kingfisher Marble

Harry was looking for a unique double neck guitar on which to play his unique style of music and to reflect the blue ocean and green forests in Hawaii. We created the custom marble finish using a special colour-changing paint that changes from shades of green to deep blue, depending on the angle of the light.

Aloha Alistair! Love my Chimaera! My Emerald guitar is the most user friendly doubleneck for performing at gigs! I usually play standing up non-stop for three hours so the guitar weighing only 6lbs is awesome! 

It is also fun to be able to have two different tunings available at my fingertips! Blue Hawaii & Emerald Green! Mahalo, Harry
