Hemken   Custom

Custom hand built full acoustic arch top by the late Michael Hemken, this is a beautifully designed & impeccably built guitar, using some of the most striking big leaf quilted maple ever seen, and what looks to be a Carpathian Spruce top, with Brazilian rosewood bridge, binding, heel cap, tailpiece and head stock overlay, with ebony finger board and tuner buttons. Lower bout is 16 11/16", nut is 1 13/16". String spacing at the bridge it's 2 1/16". 25.5” scale length. Watch this space for an in depth description and discussion of how it performs as soon as we get to play it. Emphasis on "soon". . .
