  • Description


This is a long time coming, one of a kind Gourdie 5 string fretless. This one took over six months to build where most of the work was in the burned Faux leather tooling. All done over many hours of burning outlines, shading, and background texturing. The large deep kettles  are best for deep reverberant tones.
