Extreme rarity, one off, super high standard, top professional quality electric solid body hand built by Richard Sheeks, top luthier and professional guitar builder.
BUILT FROM 2 PIECES OF SOLID FLAMED MAPLE, FROM TOP OF HEAD-STOCK TO BOTTOM OF LOWER BOUT, RIGHT DOWN THE CENTER!!!
Only 2 blocks of wood were used in this guitar’s construction, split right down the middle from the top of headstock to the bottom of lower bout. Amazing piece of workmanship, displaying the finest build a top luthier can hope to accomplish!
I spoke on the phone to “Rick” Sheeks, while he was living in Florida in 2015. We had a nice conversation and he told me he studied under Brian Gallop of Gallop Guitars in Big Rapids, Michigan.
Rick told me that he a luthier whose primary business is guitar restoration, but from time to time builds something unique. Oh man, IS THIS ONE UNIQUE!!! Rick told me that he could build any type of guitar that I like!
Guitar is very near mint overall. Gorgeous flamed maple throughout, abalone binding and large abalone fret-board inlays, duel humbuckers, stainless frets (NO WEAR) and a gorgeous exotic wood fret-board (I forget the wood, but it is not rosewood or ebony) and gold German Schaller tuners.
Low action, straight neck, perfect frets make this guitar play like cutting through butter!!!
Guitar comes with new Gator soft shell case.
THIS GUITAR IS PURELY TOP OF THE LINE, BEST OF THE BEST!!SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY.
