Click To Enlarge
Here is a  beauty of a guitar HAND-MADE for you back in 2011 by one the finest master luthiers that is now happily retired from making guitars, Mr. MAX Baranet. IF you are looking at this listing you are probably familiar with who MAX is and how much his Les Paul replicas fetch on the market. I have spoken to some owners of some quite impressive collections that include real Bursts and they swear by their MAX guitars. He has made guitars for some of the biggest names in rock-n-roll including SLASH, Billy Gibbons, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, and so on… This baby sounds as good as it looks and will be professionally set up by Jim Hamilton (yes the SRV "main" luthier) with the strings of your choice. This dream machine sports a rock solid flamed hard maple neck through body construction with old growth African dark wenge  wood  running through the body, that contrasts the natural colored maple quite nice. It also has a two piece 60 year old highly figured Quilted Honduras Mahogany body. The headstock features a Super Rare Carpathian Elm Burl over the maple neck with a matching burl wood truss rod cover. This guitar sustains and resonates as good as any guitar I have ever had. Max has Personally owned over a dozen early 1960's SGs, and has built a couple of his versions of it for some select celebrities.
