Here is one more Pandora alternative that I made exclusively with wood from the rare and beautiful Pear tree. Built under serial number #002. For the top I used the delicate and subdued maple burl that I have preserved for over ten years for special projects exactly like this one. For the neck I used Balkan maple again. The pickups are B & B custom pickups. The specially built set of humbuckers are made by Pascual Brisa Brisa from Spain. The hardware includes Gotoh tuners with a Hipshot bridge – it’s always a pleasure to work with these brands.
Designing and creating this singlecut guitar was a complete joy for me.
