(NEW) Pleinview Guitars “Looky-Loo” 12-Fret L-00, Adirondack Spruce, Mahogany – SOLD

(NEW) Pleinview Guitars are built right here at our shop by luthier/store manager Raymond Morin and his helper and our Saturday guy extraordinaire Adam Rousseau.  These guys make traditionally-minded custom instruments, mostly on commission, though an occasional spec instrument finds its way onto our website.

If this guitar looks vaguely familiar, it’s because it’s the sister guitar to this box that we built for Nathan Salsburg earlier this summer, found here.  We’re happy to say that this guitar is going to another brilliant young guitarist making his way in the world, and we’re beyond excited to hear what he does with it!

This is a 12-fret L-00 inspired by the Waterloo WL-12, but with a few twists that set it apart.  It has a very aggressive looking, super-stiff Adirondack spruce top, and Honduran mahogany back and sides.  We’ve added about 1/4″ to the body depth vs the WL-12, and used Wenge for the fingerboard and bridge.  The braces are also Adirondack spruce.

This “Looky-Loo” is a short scale (24.9″) guitar with a 1 3/4″ ebony nut and 2 5/16″ string spacing at the saddle.  It has tortoise body and soundhole binding, and a simple 3-stripe rosette.  Stew Mac Golden Age tuners with off-white buttons.  Satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish.  LR Baggs “Lyric” installed at customer’s request.

Serial #28-0917
AMW Price: SOLD
