A truly magical Merlin...
May 8, 2013
When this guitar was done with assembly and setup, we all took a minute to stop and admire it. It's really a uniquely beautiful instrument.
This is a Merlin 12 with a whole lot of extra goodness -
-Bearclaw top with a vivid transparent blue stain
-Intensely multicolored and figured Maccassar Ebony back, sides, fingerboard, bridge, and headpiece
-Curly maple binding with arm and waist bevels
-Ultra-light Gotoh "Stealth" tuners
Weighing in at 2 lbs 15 ounces, this guitar responds to the slightest touch - and can also take the heaviest strumming without giving up.
From mandolin "chop" to delicate fingerstyle sparkle, it retains a refined and powerful voice.
We'll be very sad to see this one go! It's got loads of personality and some of the most gorgeous ebony we've ever seen.
