#123 Sinker Redwood with Brazilian Rosewood


By Hozen Guitars

View Gallery

From the Hozen Guitars Blue Series. The rosette is inspired by 2 versions of Ervin Somogyi's designs: 1) The Segmented Rosette 2) The Mosaic: Pebbled Stones. I decided to smash both designs together to form something unique bounded by micro-MOP purfling, with matching end graft details done in the same style. This guitar is adorned with my signature headstock design, body rest, "Laskin" —style armrest, "Bashkin"—inspired blue recon stones inlay, Florentine cutaway, and soundport.
