#003 Aged Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood


By Hozen Guitars

View Gallery

One of the first of the few Hozen Guitars Blue Series. The rosette is inspired by Canadian guitar builder Loic Bortot but it is done in a complete circle and the fingerboard has been shortened to showcase the complete rosette. Fellow craftsmen will know how crazy it is to do a seamless perfect circle. I have come up with matching back and end graft details along with the rosette style. This guitar is adorned with my signature headstock design, body rest, "Laskin"—style armrest, "Bashkin"—style fretboard markers, Florentine cutaway, and soundport.
