We've got another build on the bench with lutherie sensation Stephen Strahm, and we cannot wait to get our hands on this one. This incoming model is a 00 featuring Honduran mahogany for the back & sides, paired with a German spruce top. The mahogany used for this instrument can also be referred to as 'beeswing mahogany' due to it's unique figure, if you look closely you can see the ribbon and flame in it - a stunning set of wood!
With Stephen's exceptional craftsmanship and soaring track record, we can expect a gorgeous 00, with a balanced piano-like tone, a wide and open voice and responsive attack.
Stephen Strahm is a true gem within the lutherie industry, with over a decade of experience and a track record of working with some of the world's best luthiers, such as Santa Cruz Guitar Company and Rick Turner Guitars - he truly is a master of his craft.This guitar is currently in build and is due to complete in late 2021.
