Price includes your choice of regular or thermally cured ( Torrified ) top normally included for that model with the exception of Engleman or euro spruce unless those become available in the future.
It also includes your choice of standard gloss finish, or closet relic finish. I’m not into severely road wearing your instrument, I’d prefer to let you do that your self.
However, I do believe that there are a couple of sonic advantages to the closet relic finish. First it allows me to apply 50% less lacquer, resulting in an incredibly thin overall film thickness.
Secondly, I believe that in “Crazing” the finish, it breaks the surface tension of the film, allowing for a more relaxed, easy and open response for all playing styles. Plus all of the cool kids are doing it!
Occasionally I offer instruments here that are prototypes, one-off's, used and or shop instruments. Find out here.
