I am very pleased to share this picture of the front and back of the fully assembled Triple Raven Tele-style guitar. It is so exciting for me to see the finished product, to be able to see my carving transformed into this wonderful completed electric guitar.
My part in this project involved carving and finishing the body, which I turned over to my brother who expertly completed the building of the guitar. The matching neck is made from Honduran mahogany and has an ebony fret board with mother-of-pearl inlays. The control knobs also have mother-of-pearl insets, and the graphite color of the saddle and pickup compliments the ebony on the neck and adds a nice contrast with the chrome plates. The report is in, and it sounds as good as it looks!
We have plans going forward to build more guitars from the intricately hand carved bodies created from my original designs. Use the contact form if you would like to be notified when the next guitar becomes available. I can’t wait to get started!
