Ten sets of select figured Indian rosewood have made for an ultra- limited offering of five custom Grand Auditoriums and five Grand Con- certs, each topped with premium Sitka spruce and voiced with Adirondack CV bracing. The rosewood backs boast beautifully mot- tled figure with an elegant mingling of earthy hues. On the front, the bloodwood binding adorns the soundhole, fretboard and peghead.

Kevin Eubanks, Jake Shimabukuro,
and All That Remains

guitarist who recently left the show to pursue his craft; Jake
Shimabukuro is reinventing how people think about ukulele
music with his virtuosic fingerstyle; and All That Remains’ Oli

with famed metal producer and guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz’
studio magic for this October’s release, For We Are Many.
