We have partnered with Shigeki and Tetsu - Schecter's extraordinary master luthiers - to present an extremely limited and hand-signed run: The RDG Luthier Select collection. Three builds make up this run and embody the Masterworks spirit of excellence in guitar craftsmanship and attention to detail.
For this run, we wanted to create three masterpieces that integrate private stock woods, top quality components, and, most importantly, the valuable input from both Shigeki and Tetsu. #2 of 3 is the embodiment of an idea to use a 5-ply neck AND fretboard with a stained maple portion, followed by an exhibition grade stabilized buckeye burl top.
We also wanted to match the stained maple portion with stained maple pickup bobbins to unite the theme. This is certainly a one-off piece that can gladly serve as an heirloom piece!
