2014 TK Smith Special Sunburst 004
2014 TK Smith Special number 004 in sunburst finish. The guitar features a chambered maple body, Birds Eye maple top and back, neck through construction, 25.5" scale length, rosewood fingerboard with 12" radius, 1.72" nut width, vintage frets, C neck profile, white and gold MOP inlays, C.A.R. pickups with cut away covers and individual magnetic pole pieces, Smith Vibrato, cast aluminum bridge, Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and Waverly tuners. Just about every bit of the guitar is designed and crafted by TK. His skill working in variety of mediums, wood, metal, pearl, and finish is stunning. A such well thought out and crafted instrument form an individual maker is a rare thing. It hits all the notes; design, style, uniqueness, musicality, well-made, gorgeous, inspiring. The new style pickups add a little brightness and clarity while having an acoustic and woody tone. Sort of a cross between a Bigsby pickup and a DeArmond very appealing. The sunburst finish is artfully applied on the body and neck. The darker look of the finish and black accents on the pickups makes for a sinister looking guitar. The feel and playability match the gorgeous appearance and tone. Wonderful round C neck shape and perfectly dressed frets makes this guitar a blast to play anywhere on the neck. Again TK has hit a home run with a fine unique instrument. Includes hand crafted custom case and strap to match.
