Adamas 1681-X, Custom Quilted Maple
Author: patchmcg (Show all albums)

This magnificent guitar resulted from shipping damage to an Elite 1768 and a SNAFU at the factory.

When I first discussed it with John Budny, we agreed to use the original neck from the Elite and build a body with a deep, hand-laid fiber-glass bowl, AAAAA-grade Quilted Maple top, inlaid epaulettes, and a pentagon, rosewood bridge. The guitar was all but finished when John discovered a mistake: the hand-laid bowl would not fit to the original neck without substantial modifications. So he offered to put a new Adamas neck on instead and we could use the other neck later on something else. The upshot is, a re-build accidentally turned into a complete custom build.....and what a build it was!
