Manley ML01 Custom

Jake Peters has been a friend of mine for many, many years.  A gifted musician, bone-carver and master luther.  We often talked about Jake building me a guitar and in 2014 it finally happened ~ the wood was selected, a style and size chosen and order placed.  Everything about this guitar is unique; from the body shape, to the inlay, to the bracing, to the neck.  The neck is a compound D / V shaped neck because I could not make up my mind which I liked better.  The final result arrived in January 2015 and exceed all my expectation.  A marvelous, responsive, one-of-a-kind instrument housed in a bright orange custom case by Calton.  Check out more photos of this amazing work of art in the Adding Soul Gallery.
