AJL Guitars / Model Andreas Öberg Deep Purple / Guitar For Sale
Model Andreas Öberg Deep Purple 2007
This is Andreas Öberg's personal guitar, designed together with him to his personal use. The Guitar is a D-hole variation of Model Andreas Öberg with a special "Deep Purple" colour.
It’s based on Favino size and body shape. Andreas wanted to cut some high frequencies and overtones without losing power from the high strings. He also wanted lots of bass response. This D-hole variation is the loudest of all models.
Rosette is made of the same brown abalone-imitation as its AJL-tuner knobs and the tailpiece inlay.
Sides and back are made of laminated birds-eye maple. It has a three piece maple neck with two contrasting rosewood stripes.
