"Model M V2"


(Hit Pic above for more Pics...)



Up for grab is my most recent Artist series 16" archtop.
It here comes with stunning (and stable) quilted mahogany laminate back and sides,
both matched to a clean looking spruce top,

The neck is made out of stable and well-seasoned mahogany and as you may note, the ebony fingerboard
is "solid black" and completely free of any brownish streaks: a rarity those days...

All other parts (tailpiece, pickup ring, pickguard, faceplate and even the knobs were all custom cut out of solid cocobolo:
a perfect match for the Lollar Imperial humbucker and the solid brass Jim Compton bridge.

Nothing wrong with matching great looks with great tone....
