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

-Side soundport

-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.
