Most of my work is vintage guitar restorations and recreations. Sometimes I like to go freestyle and funk it up a bit. I love Ziricote so here is Ziritele. Mahogany core, Flame maple 1/4” backplate, 1/4” ziricote top. Ziricote neck, frogs egg maple figerboard, Ziricote dots, Celluloid binding and pickguard. Nitro Cellulose Lacquer finish.

Very handsome guitar. I always liked the look of natural wood finish instead of the painted stuff.

I love the look and feel of the Nitro finished guitars – its such a shame that most new guitars have that thick plastic look. Anway, great guitar!

I put a lot of mileage on a 60s sunburst with binding back in my roadwork days.

This is a stunningly beautiful guitar. I took a look at your website at some of your other guitars. Looks like I have a new dream guitar to save up for. How does it sound?
