William "Grit" Laskin / Laskin Mid-Size / 2011 / Natural / Guitar
Commissioned by the Ottawa Folklore Centre to celebrate the store's 35th anniversary, the instrument features Mr. Laskin's signature inlay work.
"The inlay is all created from varieties of Shell, Stone, and Nickel Silver, then engraved. The title of this inlay is "Pass the Music On." I very deliberately pictured the two players and the toddler in a way that they are not specifically recognizable people, but generic representations of whomever the new owner projects."
The Guitar has a Solid Spruce Top and flamed Koa Back and Sides.
The Guitar is built with a sound port and Laskin's own 'Armrest' bevel on the lower bout.
Mr. Laskin's own guarantee accompanies the instrument and protects it for the first five years of the guitar's life from the date of delivery to the original owner.
The instrument also comes with a custom made Calton Case.
