"CUSTOM MADE, ALL HAND-CRAFTED WORK! It took over seventy days to produce this work of art and craftsmanship! We did the inlaid work with the gorgeous natural abalone and mother of pearl on our products. Aall inlays are hand crafted , no CNC machine cutting. Excellent luthiery craftsmanship was used in creating both its structural and cosmetic appointments. The sound is very beautiful, full, and bright with the great sound characteristics for which solid maple and spruce are renowned. It's not just another good looking guitar. In addition to its ornate beauty, you will be quite surprised with its outstanding sound quality." from Bruceweiart Product Information.

Report for this particular instrument

Originally purchased from Bruceweiart Musical Instruments in Taiwan. Originally constructed in Vietnam. Received in excellent condition. Initial testing by Greg Sale and Vic at Heritage Instruments. Required reset of bridge setup for intonation, nut refitting, nut and bridge saddle filing. Bridge fitted angle to sound board is imperfect so compensated as far as possible with saddle work. Fret machining and fret edge angle rework required. Bridge and nut work performed at Heritage Instruments in Bellingen. Fretwork performed by Tim O'Dea at Tim O'Dea Guitars in Corindi. Finally tested okay to offer for sale by Dane Clarke and Clive Little at the workshops of MandoHarp Australia in Nambucca Heads.
