Why not spread the cost?


This gorgeous custom Lion model from Ben Wilborn, is both majestic and powerful, despite its 00 size.  Built from some of the loveliest master grade Koa we've seen (named "Soldier's Curl" Koa due to its perfectly even spacing across the entire board), the wood is of light-to-medium density, offering both sustain and depth of tone.  Paired with its Tunnel 14 Redwood top, this Lion sings. Further enhancing the beauty of the Lion are Ebony bindings combined with Lavender and Maple purfling, a Koa rosette bound by two rings of Pink Paua Abalone, and Koa and Ebony headstock overlays. The lower bout of the Lion offers an Ebony armrest for comfort and the upper bout a sound port for tone.  Another fantastic feature of this Lion is that it weighs only 3lb. 7oz. You'll not tire of holding and playing this guitar!
