It is expected that certain types of guitar will always be on the heavier side and in this build Ben wanted to turn that idea on it's head. The whole guitar is built from Padauk, a heavy wood, but has a unique hollow construction designed around internal struts that join the top and the back of the guitar.
Adding several levels to the design allowed for the addition of striking rocket ship inspired exhaust vent/sound holes on the top which also show up on the sides of the guitar.
Watch the entire build in one video here or skip to the next for the first on a whole series following each part of the build in excruciating detail.
The Crimson Guitars Custom Shop is a small team of luthiers under Master Luthier Ben Crowe and the order books are open for any guitar that you can dream of, including your own version of this guitar if you so wish.
