Madagascar rosewood back & sides - a very special set, In Jason Kostal's own words:
This set of rosewood is particularly special to me as it was given to me by Ervin Somogyi when I was apprenticing with him as a way of saying "Thank You" for helping him with a project that we were working on. The colors are magical, and the sound is beyond words.
Silky, German Spruce top
Tapered body (4 3/32" to 4 3/4"), or Linda Manzer Wedge
One of Jason's incredible, "Stained Glass" rosettes. We've included a closeup so you can see the detail. Within the black outlines are individual designs. To us, they look like little paintings by Vincent Van Gogh!

Gold Gotoh 510 tuning machines with faux ebony buttons
Ebony fretboard, bound in Ebony
