This guitar features perhaps one of the most elaborate Larry Robinson inlays that we have done to date. Includes dark Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and matching Brazilian Rosewood neck. Paua shell top and back along with the 42 style abalone fingerboard extension. The rosette includes a wide Paua shell center ring set into the radial cut Brazilian background.
