Shred was built in a YouTube series on the Crimson Custom Guitars channel by Master Luthier Ben Crowe in his home studio during the pandemic. It is a multi-scale solid bodies guitar with a custom finish and partially scalloped frets in the upper reaches. It is an example that anything goes in luthiery and Crimson is more than happy to indulge every design whim possible.
