BRIAN SAUNDERS' PEANUT

Brian Saunders' latest guitar: 24" scale, mahogany back and neck, carved spruce top, ebony peghead overlay, Lollar alnico-pole soapbar, Tonepros Roller tunematic on a custom rosewood base, modified Bigsby, ivoroid binding, ivoroid button Waverly tuners, celluloid tortoise / ebony pickguard, Sarah Ryan headstock and heel details.

Brian came up with this idea a long time ago and patiently waited for me to figure it out. It was my first foray into set-neck guitars (there are more coming). I used the last remnant of salvaged spruce left over from his earlier spruce guitars for the top on this one - if you look carefully, you'll find the spot where the beetles had their way with it.
