NICK MILLEVOI'S RED CEDAR CUSTOM

Nick Millevoi's guitar: western red cedar body that began its vocational life as a stave in a locomotive water tank on the trans-American railroad, circa late-1860s. In 1902, made redundant by a change in locomotive efficiency, it was torn down and recoopered into a pickle vat stave at a Fort Collins, CO pickle operation. In 1992, it was torn down again and sat dormant, air drying in the Rocky Mountains, until 2014 when it found itself assembled into this guitar. 

Maple / rosewood neck, lacquered bakelite pickguard, Lollar Gold Foil pickups, custom horseshoe vibrato.
