Here's a beautiful and early example of Steve Helgeson's work over at Moonstone: a stunning 1982 Eclipse Standard. On the very rare occasions we run across one of his guitars, we're always knocked out by the exquisite beauty of the Western burled maple that comprises these pieces and I can imagine that back in the day, when most guitar builders would say to their buddies, "I'm going to run down to the lumber yard and see if I can find any cool wood for my next guitar", Steve would be duct taping tent poles to his ankles so he could hang off the side of a California cliff, where the burled maple he needed grew. Brave indeed, but his guitars are unique to this day amongst all others and always instantly recognizable. This particular piece shows a small amount of playwear that's hard to see because of the figuring of the wood; These are in the form of light surface scratches on the back and nothing major at all. The tuner tips were devastated, so we replaced them with shiny, new exact Sperzel replacement tips and they set the visual aspect of the guitar off like rockets. You just cannot have raggety tuner tips on a guitar this beautiful, now can you? Between the coil tapping and pickup selector switches, you can achieve a myriad of tones with this axe and you'll have tons of fun experimenting to see which one you like the most. Rare and beautiful- it's what we do best here at the 'Elk and all calls are welcomed, anytime and anywhere. Thanks for stopping by 'Elkland!
