A Tribute to Black Sky

These build photos are of a guitar that Jim made for Doug Shane, who at the time, was Burt Rutan’s right hand man and the lead test pilot for Scaled Composites.
Doug has since moved on from Scaled Composites and is now the President of Richard Branson’s Space Ship Company.

This guitar was inspired by Scaled Composites successful space flights and win of the Ansari X prize.
The guitar woods are Brazilian Rosewood back & sides with a Cedar top. The inlays were designed and executed by Larry Robinson.
