Description

Here we have a like-new Laurie Williams Tui model crafted from his rare Ancient Kauri wood in the Whitebait Premium figure (see below text about this wood). The term 'Whitebait' refers to the wonderous figure of the Ancient Kauri which appears like a school of Whitebait fish swimming beneath the water. It's sumptuous golden color is unique in the world of tonewoods. The top is Swiss Spruce with abundant medullary rays that adds brilliant shimmer to the powerful voice of the Tui body shape. The Rosette is exquisitely crafted from Abalone in a pattern of the indigenous Maori people native to New Zealand and it blends with the thin abalone that borders the top, fingerboard and headstock for an elegant yet subdued gilding.

This is a uniquely customized Tui from Laurie William's shop in New Zealand. It is crafted from his mid grade Whitebait Premium wood that is absolutely stunning and reasonably priced. Combined with a Swiss top the tone is enchanting with good shimmer atop deep bass and spacious mids. The Tui's larger body allows for great power or clear beauty. Speaking of beauty just look at this guitar, the rosette is amazing and fresh, the Ryan bevel is a nice addition and the use of thin Abalone perflings is very classy. If you are seeking one of the prettiest and most rare tonewoods, this is for you.
 
This is the first Williams guitar I've seen with the armrest bevel. It makes for an extremely comfortable playing experince. The beautiful rosette inlay is a nice touch to a gorgeous guitar.
