Contoured Legend Special

“This version of my Legend Special was designed for one of my wonderful clients who said he always wanted a Les Paul style guitar but didn’t like how heavy they were or how the edges were sharp feeling on his arm so he asked me if I would design a Legend Special with contours so as to lighten the guitar and give a softer feel on his strumming arm. So Richard and I went to work and designed this guitar with an arm slant, a tummy tuck, and a concave back. It is lighter and lacks some of the sharp edge feeling of the traditional version.

This guitar comes standard with B/W/B purfling on the top with Ivoroid binding on the body, fretboard and headstock, with a mahogany body and a rosewood fingerboard with dots. This guitar also dresses up beautifully with an exotic body wood like Claro Walnut or Hawaiin Koa or Tazmanian Blackwood and short trapazoid inlays. It also sounds great with humbuckers, mini humbuckers or P-90′s.

When I set up the first guitar and played it for the first time all I could think when I strapped it on was it felt like a single cut SG, light and comfortable, a great Rock n’ Roll guitar that will really growl yet still maintain it’s warmth and woodiness.”
