The MadCedar

This guitar was made with my special stash of Madagascar Rosewood, a body of 35yr+ aged Spanish cedar, and a fingerboard of 35yr+ gaboon ebony. With woods like this it sounds as good as it looks and plays even better.

Knurled solid ebony knobs thanks to David King:

The electronics are simple and intuitive:
