We’re very excited to bring you a brand new Crimson Custom Collection – a range of Crimson Descendant guitars that have been personally customised by Ben Crowe to create some beautiful and unique instruments. Ben has used a range of techniques – special carves, stains, finishes and hardware – to create these one-off guitars, representing a great opportunity to own an instrument created by one of the UK’s best respected luthiers at an accessible price.

In this example, Ben has enhanced the spectacular Elm body with some classy edge carves and finished it with Crimson’s lightweight poly flash coating. The comfortable C-shape neck (with twin carbon dual-action trussrod) is from Jatoba and backplates are from Wenge.  Interestingly the fretboard on this guitar is also Wenge instead of the typical Ebony – quite unusual but extremely nice. Top grade materials and components are used throughout – selected with the care and attention you’d expect from the Crimson folks. Gotoh 510 bridge , Bourns pots, handwound Crimson Classic Hooker pickups, Alpha switches, Switchcraft jack socket and string ferrules, Jescar medium jumbo frets, carbon fibre nut and Gotoh locking tuners. Comes with a Crimson Hiscox hardcase.
