Here we a truly amazing guitar: the 2010 Whyte Laydie Tribute from master luthiers Walter Lipton and Bill Tippin. This joint project celebrates the amazing guitars of its namesake in exquisite detail. Custom etched inlay from Doug Unger adorn this beauty from head to toe and his work is incredibly precise and full of mysteries. A stunning variety of materials were employed to make this one shimmer in an almost iridescent fashion from every angle, but breathtaking looks aside, the tone of this piece is monstrous. Big and lush and full as you would expect from two world class builders working with exhibition grade Brazilian Rosewood that came from the Martin factory many long years ago and a true Master Grade German Spruce top. This is a museum quality piece that is ultimately playable as well. A treasure.

2010 Lipton C 16" Exhibition Grade - Steel String Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Simply exquisite. I love this guitar both for its shimmering beauty and its lush voice. The Whyte Laydie motif is classic and timeless and Doug Unger took it to amazing heights in this instrument. The old woods being worked in the hands of Walter Lipton and Bill Tippin show what masters with some 70 years experience between them can do. It's really an outstanding guitar in every way and a true modern collectible." - Paul Heumiller

"This Martin styled guitar has a beautiful tone and incredible inlay and engraving with patterns inspired by the Fairbanks "Whyte Laydie" banjos if the early 20th century. Definitely one of the most responsive guitars I've ever played and really beautifully put together. A real collectible work of art that's also great playing and sounding.
