The Custom Shop version of the Crimson Descendant model features a specially selected stunningly beautiful wood top resulting in a premium instrument which, thanks to some of the most modern 3D CAD and CNC technologies is still available an incredibly competitive price. Like all of Crimson guitars, you can expect amazing quality consistency, but with the added heart and soul derived from the hand finishing, courtesy of Crimson’s experienced luthiers. Each guitar featuring stunning woods, top quality components, and British craftsmanship at its best. From a quality and specification standpoint these Custom Shop instruments from Crimson Guitars in Dorset are in the same league as Custom Shop output from the big American manufacturers, at prices equivalent to mass produced guitars. The shape is familiar but different, and the twin humbucker pickup configuration is tried and trusted. Each guitar is complete one-off with it’s own unique wood grain or knotting.
In this example, the guitar has a beautiful book matched flamed sycamore top on an English cherry body – all in a lightweight but lustrously glossy finish. The comfortable C-shape neck (with twin carbon dual-action trussrod) and matching backplates are from padauk. The 12” radius fretboard is dark ebony, with 22 frets and Crimson signature hollow aluminium tube dot markers. Top grade materials and components are used throughout – selected with the care and attention you’d expect from the Crimson folks. Grainger hardtail bridge with brass saddles, Bourns pots, handwound Crimson Classic Hooker pickups (with coil split function), Alpha switches, Switchcraft jack socket and string ferrules, Jescar medium jumbo frets, carbon fibre nut and Gotoh locking tuners – these are seriously well equipped instruments!
Comes with a moulded Crimson Hiscox hardcase.
