R-EVOLUTION    East Indian rosewood, Bearclaw Sitka spruce, mahogany, ebony     2008

This unique cutaway design features a neck that is adjustable for action.  Accessible through the soundhole, a custom machined mechanism pivots the neck around its mounting fastener to effectively raise or lower the strings above the fretted fingerboard to the desired height.  Also novel on this experimental guitar is the component neck consisting of separately machined neck shaft, open teardrop head and ‘keel’.
