(Guitar No. 1, top left to bottom right)

Some specs: Our very own RLR Spider, U.S. spun cone, ebony capped maple bridge insert, bone nut, internal baffle, chrome hardware, rosewood fretboard and headstock overlay, cream binding top and back, hand-buffed gloss lacquer finish over our very popular Vintage Sunburst.

(Guitar No. 2)
“Reverse” CoverGirl R-Body Pro Model. Another brand new build! FYI, our standard CoverGirl usually consisits of figured maple top and back, with mahogany sides. This one is the “reverse of that, with the top and back being made of Honduras Mahogany, and the sides are figured maple. We have worked the staining and sunbursting of the sides so that they look great against the natural mahogany color of the top and back. This is our classic R-Body size and shape guitar. We know how to build great tone and volume into our R-Body guitars, so don’t worry about this guitar not being as big as our larger Peabody Series guitars! Some specs: RLR Spider, U.S. spun cone, ebony capped maple bridge insert, bone nut, internal baffle, chrome hardware (fan cover plate and Grover #305-C tuners), ebony fretboard and headstock overlay, tortoise-white-black binding top and back, hand-buffed gloss lacquer finish. The neck matches the body nicely too, a bit of a custom affair, being made of five plies, including maple, narra, and walnut. This guitar puts out a sweet sound, tremendous sustain, all in all, a real fun guitar to play! $3250. Hard-Shell case included.
(Guitar No. 3)
Peabody CoverGirl Pro Model. Yet ANOTHER brand new build! This is our classic “CoverGirl” model, in the larger Peabody size. The top and back of this guitar are made of very actively figured Birdseye Maple. The sides are book-matched Genuine Honduras Mahogany. The neck matches nicely too, also being made of mahogany, with jet-black ebony fretboard and headstock overlay. More specs: RLR Spider, U.S. spun cone, ebony capped maple bridge insert, bone nut, internal baffle, chrome hardware (poinsettia cover plate and Grover #305-C tuners), jet-black ebony fretboard and headstock overlay, classic white-black-white binding top and back, hand-buffed gloss lacquer finish over our very own CoverGirl Sunburst. This guitar offers an extremely well balanced tone, all the way from the lowest bass note to the highest treble. No lack of raw power when needed, thanks to our large body and our unique internal construction techniques. Fear banjos no more! $3450, hard-shell case included.
(Guitar No. 4)
Peabody Pro Model Custom Build. This guitar is built with book-matched East Indian Rosewood back and sides, and a Red Spruce top. The body was then bound in tortoise-white-black celluloid, top and back, for a stunning look. The neck is solid mahogany, with ebony fretboard and headstock ovelay. We hate to cover up beautiful wood like this, so we have finished this guitar in a hand-buffed, high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Some more specs: RLR Spider, U.S. spun cone, ebony capped maple bridge insert, bone nut, internal baffle, chrome hardware (including poinsettia cover plate and Grover #305-C tuners). Subtly refined tone is what you get with this blend of woods and our construction technique. All the volume you would ever need, but oh-so-responsive for delicate playing. A thing of beauty is a joy to behold! $3650, includes your choice of hard-shell case or Access Stage 3 gig bag.
(Guitar No. 5)
R-Body Pro Model Custom Build. The wood we had on hand was the inspiration for this guitar. This particular guitar is actually built from three different varieties of walnut, those being: Claro Walnut, Eastern Walnut, and Bastogne. The top is spruce. More specs: RLR Spider, U.S. spun cone, ebony capped maple bridge insert, bone nut, internal baffle, gold plated hardware throughout (including fan cover plate and Grover #305-C tuners). The performance of this guitar is simply amazing. Maybe I am a sucker for walnut reso’s, maybe it’s the blend of these different woods, the way we build, or maybe all of these things put together. This guitar rocks! Very loud, yet also great at slower frilly, trilly stuff too. To top it off, this is just a beautiful guitar to look at too. Your choice of a hard-shell or Travelite case, $3450. We even have a bit of a video clip to show you how this guitar looks and sounds…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
