Bristlecone "Ravenala"

This Bristlecone is Madagascar rosewood and European spruce. Custom features include abalone top trim, abalone fingerboard markers, stainless steel frets and a veneer on the back of the peghead.

This guitar is owned by Antonio Fernandes in Portugal. An avid traveler, Antonio named it Ravenala after the tree which is known as the "traveler's tree".

"It´s wonderful to play now the guitar I first dreamed of. I believe I can hear a sweet voice of an angel inside it!"

Antonio Fernandes
