MRK01 Flamed Makore Acoustic


By MRK Artistry LLC

View Gallery

The MRK01-0819J is a custom-designed medium-sized guitar with a beautiful set of Makore back and sides. The inspiration for this guitar came from the melding of an old-style Martin and the more modern Kinkade-style guitars. The lower and upper bouts have been shaped to offer a more pronounced radius which is enhanced by a body depth of 3-1/2" at the neck connection and 4" at the lower end. Both the front and rear plates have a slight outward radius that enhances a nice even response across all strings. This guitar was hand-built from start to finish and features unique pewter metal inlay on both the headplate and fingerboard position markers. This guitar features a unique radiused and diamond double Rosewood inlay end flash that is quite striking.
