Being a graphic & web designer, my favorite challenge is to create for other artists.  This one is hot off the press & was a pleasure to work with Jason Falsetti of Defining Point Studio.

New Custom Guard in Spalted Maple

I’m constantly experimenting with new pickguard designs as I refine and perfect my manufacturing processes.  After doing a few in Spalted Maple I decided to make one for my Special Edition Martin XC1T Ellipse Acoustic. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I especially love how it compliments the contrasts between the light and dark features of this gorgeous Martin acoustic. Custom Guard in Spalted Maple on a Martin XC1t Ellipse.
