RRP – GBP 12849 / EUR 14399

Yuriy Shishkov’s Leaves of Tears model is a masterclass in subtlety. There’s silver wire inlay patterns wrapped around the body, adorned by sparks of diamonds and diopside stones on the individual branches. It’s got a hand-stained purple burst finish. This guitar has a very special look indeed.

RRP – GBP 8849 / EUR 9899

 

Dennis Galuszka: Custom ‘62 Precision Bass
