$14,350 with Calton deluxe case and Colorado case cover.
Black Acacia or Shittim Wood
This is the wood that the Ark of the Covenant was made from and was mentioned about 26 times in the Bible. It is hard and beautiful and rings like a bell. This set (along with about 6 more like it) is highly figured. We have decided to pair it with a master grade Italian Spruce top and a mahogany neck. We have appointed it with ebony binding, Paua Abalone purfling, Tasmanian Blackwood buttons, truss rod cover and rosette. We topped it all off with glow side markers and small glow FB markers, gold frets and bone pins.
