X20-12 Woody Quilted Maple Vintage Amber

After building a custom acoustic bass for Paul a few years ago, he approached us to build this custom X20-12 with exactly the same cosmetic specs to create a matching pair. We selected a piece of our finest quilted maple veneer and finished it in our favourite vintage amber burst . To set it off, it got all the gold hardware and even a gold logo to complete the look.
