Guitar of the Month March 2005

34″ scale, 24 frets Deep set rock maple/purpleheart neck design (set to tail piece)
Carved 5A quilt top
Chambered 5A quilted maple arched back body
Ebony fretboard with custom abalone snake inlay with spider jade eyes
Custom pearl logo is “ithilsarn”, (Moonstone translated into the Sindarin mode of Tolkien’s elvish)
Hand stained deep cacao blue
Alembic active electronics, bridge and tailpiece

“This M-80 bass took some arm twisting to be redesigned as a deep set neck, along with having a customer requested non traditional Moonstone logo. We are both fairly happy with the outcome.”
