Description

The Tippin Pink Lady was inspired when we happened upon some rare Pink Ivory wood. This wood grows in southeast Africa and is rarely found in sizes suitable for guitars. It's beautiful vibrant color and amazing tone set us on a course to build this unique guitar. The body shape is Bill's Staccato, which is an updated 0 sized small guitar. We worked closely with Bill Tippin on the tonal and cosmetic details. We chose premium Italian Spruce for the top, a flamed Maple neck and Bois de Rose for the fingerboard and matching bridge. Bill Tippin and Glenn Nichols created a stunning headstock inlay of Hibiscus with carefully selected materials to bring it to life. They even included the water droplets that formed while initially photographing the flower and there is one following pedal on the back of the guitar. But the fine folks at Tippin Guitars didn't stop there, they added very fine Mother of Pearl Sparkle trim bordering the fingerboard and the entire top. It is very subtle and beautiful with fine bloodwood lines framing the MOP Sparkle. The backstrip echoes this treatment and the entire guitar is bound in flamed maple. The tuners are adorned with Ivoroid buttons. My favorite feature is the gem quality Opal necklace rosette. But what Bill and I are most proud of is the tone of this guitar, it is simply bewitching, complete in every register with fullness and wonderful sparkle.

Just 4 Pink Ladies have ever been made. This one comes complete with framed drawings of the inlay art as well!

We find the finest instruments are created when a builder is given freedom and an enjoyable project to dive into. Bill Tippin and his folks did an amazing job on this instrument. It is even more beautiful in person and the tone is enchanting. It's no secret Bill is one of the best luthiers today but what you may not know is how much he enjoys his work. This guitar is evidence of that. Every detail is original and stunning but truly it's the tone we are most proud of. This is a worldclass custom instrument and we are delighted to offer it to you.
 
This is an incredibly clear sounding instrument that plays like a dream. The shorter scale length makes it feel very comfortable under the left hand and the string spacing makes it perfect for fingerstylists
