Description

This one’s a special piece that stands proud apart from the crowd! California’s Tad Brown offers this brand new True Blue acoustic archtop here with Sugar Maple body and Adirondack Spruce top, stainless steel frets, and a lapis lazuli-infused finish rendering the guitar in a brilliant blue.
Here’s Tad to explain: “Earth meets water in Honduran Rosewood and Lapis Lazuli. The blue pigment comes from the historic Lapis Lazuli gemstone, sprayed on as the color coat. It has this very cool unique three dimensional effect, appearing darker or lighter depending on ambient lighting, being translucent to direct light and opaque in reflected light. Permanent colorfastness that will never fade.”
Such an exciting and novel approach, and we’re here to tell you, it’s gorgeous. Added touches include: Rosewood tailpiece suspended on titanium cello tailgut wire, which resonates and adds overtone complexity to your playing, a pickup jack installed at the tail (for adding a pickup down the line should you choose), and a Fort Knox-strong Calton flight case.
