X20 Woody Quilted Maple Vintage Amber Pinless

Bob knows a thing or two about guitars as he is a builder himself. So when he came to us with the specs of this build, he knew exactly what he wanted. He wanted 13 frets to the body so as to move the bridge further back on the body, so we shortened the neck and changed the bridge placement. We gave it our favourite Quilted Maple veneer with vintage amber burst and matching amber carbon back and sides. The pickup was a K&K Pure Mini to pick up the natural voice of the guitar. To add to the custom specs we went with our custom pinless bridge design.
