Indian Hill 00 Guitar (New)

  • Malaysian Blackwood back & sides
  • Adirondack spruce top
  • Radial-grain rosette with a bound soundhole using Malaysian Blackwood and Arariba (aka Canary Wood)
  • Indian rosewood binding & end graft with a simple little inlay of Arariba to tie in with the rosette and headstock
  • Chrome Waverly tuning machines with ebony buttons
  • Ebony fretboard
  • Side sound port
  • Mike utilized a Tornavoz around the soundhole. For those unfamiliar with a tornavoz, it is a thin and, in this case, shallow tube (~3/4") inset into the top. The concept has been around since the early 1800's and lowers the frequency at which the main air cavity vibrates. The structured sides and sound port both raise this frequency so adding a Tornavoz to the mix allows Mike to create a more balanced system and stronger bottom end.
  • Flush, magnetic truss rod cover
  • Carved, pinless bridge (macassar ebony, arariba, and malaysian blackwood)
  • Beautiful, UV poly finish
  • Satin finish on the neck & headstock
  • The sound is rich and clear as a bell
  • Canadian black tolex hard shell case
  • Some details in Mike's own words:
  • For the past few years I've been building with "structured sides" and have loved the results. I this case the core of the lamination is western red cedar and the inner lamination is yellow cedar. With a dark back, I thought it would look best to ebonize the yellow cedar. For those of you that haven't seen this process, it's MAGIC -- basically you wipe on a coat of something with a high tannin content (I used a quebracho "tea") followed by an iron oxide solution (steel wool dissolved in vinegar).
