This guitar was custom made for Dieter Hennings and was inspired by the sound of number 30. That particular guitar project, which was intended as more of an art project, resulted in a very unique guitar sound with a very velvet response and even focus from every note. I was very surprised at how other players gravitated to no 30. After building almost 60 guitars it can be difficult to know for sure what direction to take a design. Based upon the feedback I have received from players that tried both this guitar and no. 30, I have decided to continue my exploration of this type of build.
