#027 Aged Sitka Spruce with Mexican Ziricote


By Hozen Guitars

View Gallery

From the Hozen Guitars Blue Series. The rosette is inspired by none other than Ervin Somogyi himself —as he graciously permitted. I want to pay tributes to people who inspire me in my craft and remember them along the way. I love how the paua accentuates the green stabilized wood for the rosette. I have come up with matching end graft details along with the rosette. This guitar is adorned with my signature headstock design, body rest, "Laskin"—style armrest, matching "Bashkin"—style fretboard markers.
