Offered as a 2014 NAMM Show Special limited to no more than thirty premium instruments, the SS-000S-14 is a breathtaking traditional 12-fret design crafted with rare highly figured Claro walnut top, back, sides and neck. A classic floral and vine inlay motif is executed in thin veneers of tonally viable aluminum, beautifully designed and engraved by master engraver Tira Mitchell. A thinly dimensioned top supported with Adirondack red spruce bracing and hide glue body construction yields a surprisingly balanced and brilliant fingerstyle sound. The SS-000S-14 is, without a doubt, a guitar that needs to be seen in person. Truly a work of art both in it's sound and it's beauty, this is a guitar that has no rival.
