The CB "Herringbone" in Select Grade Indian Rosewood

Chris built this Herringbone for a customer who wanted the deep, rich sound of Indian Rosewood along with the distinction of a 1940s-style Sunburst finish. Chris' selection of a superb set of Indian Rosewood with straight, even grain and perfect coloration only adds to the effect. We think you will agree that this is a stunning variation on the Herringbone design.
