Please note: due to changes in regulations and constant design developments, we sometimes need to change details such as binding and inlay materials.
An extraordinary design, deliberately so to fulfil Henry's "wide" sense of ascetics. It's an Ariel body, made from Pink Ivory with a Sinker Redwood top. Bindings, bevel, and "scoop" made from Olive wood, which was all a bit of an adventure!
Fan frets and 12 strings on a Claro Walnut neck, laminated with Ebony and red lines. The headstock is built on two levels to accommodate the slanted nut, plus some little features just because I wanted to have a little fun.
I carved out a deep "thumb rest" on the heel which turns out to be amazingly comfortable and allows a slightly different strap pin position. I think I'll call it the Bucknall Swerve. Won't be the first time those words have been used, but not for the same reason.
Henry says it is "absolutely astonishing"
