Default Stephen Kinnaird White Tiger CS for Miami Guitars

Here’s the first of two Adirondack Spruce over Quilted Maple guitars for Miami Guitars (an AGF sponsor). We’ve had a lot of fun building this one. The Craig Lavin inlay is spectacular. My feeble pictures do not do it justice. Nor could I fully capture how dramatic the maple is. We’ll add a video next week so you can here the tone of it, but until then enjoy the pictures.






















Thanks for stopping by and looking!

Smile What a STUNNER!!!

Absolutely beautiful!!!

The Maple is out of control. And the Binding (is it Koa?) is a perfect compliment. And IMnotHO, one can never go wrong with a bevel and a sound port!

The inlay is the icing on the cake.

Way to go gentlemen!

Keep them coming

Paul

I was lucky enough to see this guitar in person during its construction. The photos are beautiful but really don't do this guitar justice. The inlay is even more spectacular and much more vibrant in person and the maple is as fine a set as I've seen in a long time. Steve better have another set of Maple this amazing for my next commission. I know it sounds repetitive but WELL DONE GUYS! Another great guitar out of Nacogdoches.
