Impossibly rare Chapin Strata-Houla with a unique combination of woods. For those in the know, Bill Chapins guitars are highly sought after. Each one was painstakingly created by a luthier...not stamped out. No two are the same. These rarely resurface from collections because they in the hands of folks who have tried everything under the sun and realize CHAPINS represent fight well above their weight.
