2015 TK Smith Western Special
The latest and greatest from the master TK Smith. Taking inspiration from western-styled guitars like the Gretsch Round-up and the innovative work of Paul Bigsby TK has outdone himself with this guitar. The knotty pine top and head stock overlay, the inlay on the pickguard, the double horseshoes, and the oh so cool hand engraved aluminum. As always the attention to detail is incredible. It is remarkable to have the combination of precision and the feel and look of hand made. The case is also a work of art. The wood grained sides were salvaged from the family home built by TK's grandfather in the 1950s. This guitar is one of a kind piece of craftsmanship and style.
