THE FOUNDRY

    Not all builds have an origin story. In an old mill building somewhere in Massachusetts, there is a foundry. The owner of this foundry discovered an unused support beam that was made of spruce wood well over one hundred years old. The vision was to craft an entire guitar from this one beam, and incorporate the industrial past of the building and it's occupants through the decades. A celebration of both wood and metal, and the labor that shapes them.

The body is made from bookmatched pieces of spruce, while the neck is made from one solid piece. The fretboard is made of morado with black pearl inlays. The pickguard is cut from a sheet of steel that has been preserved in it's raw state. The pickups are handmade Stonewall humbuckers. To celebrate the theme of the guitar, a special branding iron was made to create the logo.
