Something I made with and for a friend. Body is made of Bubinga Wood from Honduras. The Hardware Parts come from Gibson. We had an in with a sanctioned Gibson repair shop so the parts like the fret board and hardware are all genuine Gibson made in Kalamazoo parts. I grew up washing Gibson hardware parts in gasoline in a Buffing shop next door to my parents small foundry. I was 12 years old at the time. The good old days. This is presented as a nod to a wonderful old friend Dan Riley. Note the name on the Guitar.
