M-tone Flight Risk 10


I made this guitar for the 2018 Holy Grail Guitar Show. I pulled out all the stops and combined a deep body carve with lots of metal work that integrates machine precision with an organic hand made look. The finish and general aesthetic is based on an old train line from India. The guitar is built to look like an industrial product that has been heavily worn, used and hand modified over the course of many years. Yes, it looks cool, but of course it also plays like an absolute dream and sounds rich, dynamic and has plenty of bite.
