2008 Mustapick Aurora Macassar Ebony/Koa
SOLDAdd to Compare
Every now and then, we get a guitar in the shop which is so staggeringly beautiful, it reminds us of the first time we fell in love with music. This, a custom build from Matt Mustapick which became his standard Aurora model, is just such an instrument. With a huge, bold voice, articulate and finely honed, the Macassar Ebony and Koa body are tuned with depth and sonority in mind.Set up for lowered tunings like DADGAD, the Aurora is perfect for the fingerstylist looking to blow doors down with the force of their arrangements–with a monstrous projection and haunting sustain, the Aurora sounds more like a three-piece band than simply a six-string guitar. The Macassar Ebony provides a clarity to the low-end, and Mustapick’s renowned skills with Koa have yielded a top that evens out the tone and provides the trebles with great body and a clean, invigorating presence.Per the custom build specs, this guitar features gorgeous crimson Bloodwood bindings, rosette, and headstock veneer, with a slight arm rest bevel and a slight Manzer Wedge for ease of playing–and let’s not forget the upper bout soundport to project the bass straight to the player’s ear! As mentioned above, this guitar has a longer-than-average multi-scale fretboard (27 3/8″ on the low E and 25 5/8″ on the high), so we recommend keeping this guitar in lowered tunings, rather than up to standard, unless you use lighter strings.Replete with sumptuous appointments and playability upgrades, this Aurora is your next guitar to expand your definitions of what a guitar is, and what it can sound like.
