Default Peggy White Premier - Brazilian Rosewood and Italian Spruce

Six months ago I moved to an island off of an island on the east coast of Canada. Fogo Island has made a name for itself and it's rugged beauty is completely inspiring!
This guitar, a custom order through Dream Guitars, is the first build to come out of my new shop.
Stunning Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and a gorgeous Italian Spruce top with a micro arm bevel and Bashkin-style fretmarkers.
Can't wait to string this one up!

Thanks, Tom! I've been a bit lax with my posting so I'm hoping to be a bit more diligent in the future.

Great to see your work again Peggy! Iím envious of your location, as Iím sure itís a rich source of inspiration. Or was it the Sydney Opera House that inspired your rosette?

Definitely! Opera house on the left and on the right are two yachts sailing on the adjacent Sydney Harbour.

That is absolutely stunning! I love that the inlay on the rosette does not go all the way around. Gives it a unique touch.

Hi there, Peggy! Beautiful guitar and congratulations on your new shop/location! You must be so excited!


What is your base price for custom inquires?
If you don't mind me asking, of course!
I know your site says there are no available build slots at the moment but I'm taking notes for future reference.
