1776 Custom Guitar

MG 4.0XP Flamed Cherry/Adirondack Red Spruce

As we approached the 1776th guitar produced by our shop, we decided to dedicate the guitar to the images this number evokes. With that in mind we set about to build a one of a kind MG 4.0XP in honor of July 4th, 1776.

This exquisite guitar features a gorgeous Adirondack Red Spruce top along with Flamed Cherry sides and Flamed Cherry/Flamed Maple 3 piece back. Braced with Adirondack Red Spruce and Flamed Walnut this guitar has a bright crisp tone and unparalleled appointments. The fretboard and binding are made of Flamed Maple and match beautifully with the Mammoth tusk overlay on the headcap. Mammoth tusk inlays are also featured on the 3 piece Flamed Cherry/Flamed Maple Bridge, Label and Heel cap.

Extensive scrimshaw work was done by Bob Hergert on the Headcap, Label, Heelcap, Bridge, Bridge pins and End pin. The artistry and detail of Bob’s scrimshaw work is absolutely astounding. This MG 4.0XP is truly a unique work of art and deserving of closer look. Take a peek at the photo gallery to see this incredible guitar for yourself.
