This instrument is absolutely stunning–"featuring a cocobola top rich with deep browns, bright oranges, and purples. As you follow the lines of color, notice the delicacy of the stained-glass style inlays, the fluidity of the pickup mounts, and pay careful attention to the pickups: with their flowing grain pattern and intricate inlays. Aside from their visual appeal, these Nordstrand pickups are unique. They cut through all the extra amp and pickup noise and allow you to actually hear the wood–"maximizing the versatility of using a broad spectrum of tonewoods and tapping into the full potential of beautiful and natural sound.
