10679 Burl Brazilian Rosewood Series II Guitar
« on: January 22, 2016, 05:11:51 PM »
This lovely guitar stopped by for a brief visit yesterday to have the battery clips reconnected.
 

 
Burl Brazilian Rosewood to die for.  
 
We didn't take very many pictures in 1997, so when I get a chance to document some earlier work, I jump on it.

Surprising that it's a '97; looks much newer.  And yes, beautiful guitar!

Body looks like a combination of a Standard Point and a Spoiler. Hum-canceller must be mounted inside?  
 
Yes indeed, that wood is really something!

It's a 20th Anniversary smooth bottom

Agree about the shape, really nice. Also thought it was newer at first glance. Must admit I am not usually that big a fan of burled wood but what an exquisite piece of Rosewood! Would love to have an instrument with a top like that Rosewood is great sounding wood.
 
Any chance you took a shot that includes the headstock? The electronics are interesting, too. Looks like a Series II without the humcanceller.

I knew this looked familiar.  I think this one on the forum is the same guitar and has more photos.

Oh, Mica, this is gorgeous!
Not just a bass, this is an Alembic!
