MRK01B Flamed Maple Florentine


By MRK Artistry LLC

View Gallery

The MRK01B is a custom-designed medium-sized guitar. This guitar was hand-built using a Sitka Spruce top and highly flamed Maple for the back and sides. The sound hole is larger than standard and is trimmed with abalone and violin-inspired binding. Unique abalone inlay adorns the Ebony fingerboard along with Ebony and abalone binding. The MRK Artistry MRK01B guitar is inspired by both an old-style Martin and the more modern Kinkade-style instruments. The lower and upper bouts have been shaped to offer a more pronounced radius that 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 provides a nice even response across all strings.
