Bristlecone Archback

This Bristlecone features an arched back carved from solid European maple and a curly maple neck. Appointments are Brazilian rosewood. This guitar is owned by Rich Olson in California.


"This guitar is just so well crafted, Mark. I definitely feel close to it. I have been playing guitar for the last 35 years and have never been so overwhelmed by the sound and feel of a guitar. In my opinion, everything about the way this guitar plays and sounds is perfect. The balance is dead on, and the tone is rich and clear. She is just a beauty!"
