Commissioned with and built by Paul in 2008, only two years after his shop was destroyed by a fire, the construction & styling is reminiscent of a Gibson Byrdland.

Paul was a very talented luthier & this guitar demonstrates his skills completely.

The body is a hollowed out piece of Mahogany that was rescued from the fire, the body features a solid spruce arched top all hand carved & tuned by Paul, the tailpiece is an original Gibson gold plated version, Paul removed the gold plating & replated in Chrome as the original owner wanted chrome/Nickel parts
