Default 2007 Tippin Staccato Pink Lady, Pink Ivory/Italian Spruce

n 2007, this Tippin Pink Lady was inspired when we happened upon some rare Pink Ivory wood. This wood grows in southeast Africa and is rarely found in sizes suitable for guitars. Its beautiful vibrant color and amazing tone set us on a course to build this unique guitar. The body shape is Bill's Staccato, which is an updated 0 sized small guitar. We worked closely with Bill Tippin on the tonal and cosmetic details. We chose premium Italian Spruce for the top, a Flame Maple neck and Bois de Rose for the fingerboard and matching bridge. Bill Tippin and Glenn Nichols created a stunning headstock hibiscus inlay with carefully selected materials to bring it to life. They even included the water droplets that formed while initially photographing the flower, and there is one corresponding pedal on the back of the guitar.

The fine folks at Tippin Guitars didn't stop there. They added very fine Mother of Pearl sparkle trim bordering the fingerboard and the entire top. It is very subtle and beautiful with fine Bloodwood lines framing. The backstrip echoes this treatment and the entire guitar is bound in Flame Maple. The tuners are adorned with Ivoroid buttons. Our favorite feature is the gem quality Opal necklace rosette. But what we and Bill and are most proud of is the tone of this guitar. It is simply bewitching, complete in every register with fullness and wonderful sparkle.

Now the guitar has come back to us, and we’re more than excited to offer it to you!

"We worked with Bill Tippin the custom build this instrument when it was brand new, and it was a very special project near to my heart. It's awesome to see it again, and let me tell you that years later the guitar is better than ever. We all know that Spruce ages and blossoms, and this guitar is proof. What a voice! With extremely gorgeous aesthetics with gem quality opal on the rosette and rare Pink Ivory wood!" - Paul Heumiller

"This is an incredibly clear sounding instrument that plays like a dream. The shorter scale length makes it feel very comfortable under the left hand and the string spacing makes it perfect for fingerstylists." - Al Petteway

Price: $15,450
