Angie – One for the Barber

DSC_0923 edit

This guitar was a custom built for my barber Angelo who had never played any instrument in his life. He is having a blast playing this guitar hooked up to his small portable amp! The box is unique; it is not covered by paper on any of the surfaces, only on the edges and this gives it a fantastic sound.

  • solid wood ‘Punch’ cigar box
  • oak neck, oak fingerboard (stained mahogany), white pearloid fret dots
  • 620 mm scale length (24.4 inches)
