Fishook Myrtle Guitar

I bought the Myrtle Hook from JD a couple weeks ago.  I have not had a lot of time for posting (too much work and too much time playing 'Myrtle' when I'm not working).  I am simply in awe of this instrument.  It has the sweetest tones I have heard from the deepest low I have heard to sweet, singing, sustained highs!  I told JD, that to me, this instrument is magical and powerful at the same time.  His guitars don't take a back seat to anyone!  JD posted far better pics than I can already, but the variated Brazilian Rosewood headstock and trim really shine next to the Myrtle body.  Thanks JD!Fred

Pristine condition Fishook L-body american chestut guitar with Schertler Basik system.  The only reason I'm selling is because I got an amazing opportunity to acquire a Scheerhorn and I need the money to fund the purchase.  This guitar has a resonant woody tone and is probably the finest built instrument I've ever seen, of any type.  The workmanship is out of this world.  

It is a unique guitar, made of quartersawn old american chestnut salvaged from an old corn crib in Ohio.  The neck is made from walnut that was cut down over 90 years ago.  The bracing is from salvaged red spruce mill beams.  All of the inlays are made from wooly mamoth tusks, recovered from under the ice pack.  It has the optional extended fretboard.  You can read more detail about the construction below in the photo of JD Meyers' description.
