Cutaway CB Super with "Style 41" Abalone trim

Chris created this instrument for a discriminating customer who needed his guitar to "cut through" in a large band setting. The large body size, coupled with the Alpine Spruce top (tonally identical to Engelmann) and Indian Rosewood back & sides yielded a powerful guitar with a warm, sweet tone. For playing lead lines up the neck, Chris designed a special cutaway for maximum tone and beauty.

Chris' client also wanted a guitar of striking visual appeal, and specified a custom dark reddish sunburst, "Style 41" abalone top purfling (which is the same as Style 42 except for the "connecting links" beside the fretboard extension) "Rose Vine" fretboard inlays, abalone and mother-of-pearl "Rose" peghead inlay, and gold-plated Waverly tuners with black pearl buttons.
