SARAH RYAN, TRADITIONAL, OLD WOOD

SCOTT SMITH'S SARAH RYAN CUSTOM

Scott Smith's guitar: western red 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 2012 when it found itself assembled into this guitar.

Maghogany / rosewood neck, Mastery bridge, bakelite pickguard, Bigsby B5, Sarah Ryan's paint.

This guitar also features the first set of Lollar's fantastic, long-awaited Lollartrons.
