A truly unique instrument that is limited to models sold in 2016 and is crafted from a solid Sitka spruce top with Vintage Tone System (VTS) and adorned with artwork by William Matthews. Artist William Matthews is widely known for his beautiful watercolor portrayals of the working cowboys from the great ranches of the American West. This auditorium 12-fret body with quilted mahogany back and sides, grained ivoroid binding, a modified low oval neck, ebony fingerboard and bridge and cowboy-themed artwork carried through on the headstock will make this a guitar of choice for collectors and players alike. All registered LE Cowboy 2016 guitars will receive a book and DVD about the artist.
