Details

Detroit builder Gabriel Currie has been refining the design of his vintage-meets-modern La Carne electric for decades, through close and careful work with inspiring musicians. Handcrafted and custom built with a variety of options, this particular model has a solid slab body and neck of old stock korina. Though this African tonewood can be hard to come by and difficult to work with, it's described as a "super mahogany" and has long been prized for its responsiveness. Paired with a combination of humbuckers, the result is "a living, breathing multi-dimensional tool for the artists and players who know and demand vintage soul, feel, character and tone."
