  • This guitar is from the original owner, Tim Kring, Hollywood producer of note (think "Crossing Jordon," "Heroes", "Touch", or "Heroes Reborn.")  There is an interior label bearing his name. He personally visited Bill Tippin to spec out the build. If you ever hear of a TV character with a name like "Mr. Goodall"  or "Mr Lowden," you can be sure that Mr. Kring had a hand in the production, somewhere along the line. This guitar was handcrafted in 2000.
