X20-7 Nylon Red Fan Fret

We installed a fantastic Barbera Transducer Systems Pickup on this X20-7 Nylon,which features seven individual pickups all built into one saddle! For the unique, hand-made 7-string headstock Alistair took60 layers of thin carbon fibre sheet, layered them to make a solid block that was cured. After that he cut out the shape of the headstock and carved the end product by hand in a very time-consuming process. This gives you a beautiful layering effect reminiscent of a wood grain pattern. Under the clear coat you see all the nice layers of carbon weave.
