About This Project
Armand is another customer that I had the fortune of meeting in person during the build process, during a layover in Houston, TX. We had been specifying the guitar of his dreams for quite some time already at that stage – to feature bright green stain and matching hardware. Materials were picked based on Armand’s extensive expertise and experience to match his preferences. As (bad) luck would have it, when #46 was finally on the CNC and the contour was cut, a knot was uncovered inside the rear cutaway, so the build had to be restarted. During this extra thinking time, specs simplified and we ended up with a natural top and regular black hardware. Rick Toone’s IPNP™ neck provides excellent ergonomics and playability.
