Banker Redtail Hollowbody
This is the first and only one of its kind. A hollowbody Redtail, made from a chambered and bookmatched flame mahogany billet and figured Redwood top with a gorgeous quartersawn sinker mahogany neck. This is not your typical hollowbody guitar made from a laminated shell, it started as a solid slab of wood that was routed and chambered, similar to how the Gibson CS-336 guitars are made. The result is a guitar that is made from one solid piece of wood, as opposed to multiple layers of veneer and glue.
