Custom Art Guitar, Very Rare Gorgeous!!!!
1999 USA Made Kitty Wells Art Presentation Guitar with newer Hard Shell Case. Made by Crafters of Tennessee a Nashville Custom Builder owned by famous Dobro player Tut Taylor and his son Mark Taylor. This guitar was built for Ed Gregory a Nashville agent who commissioned Mark Taylor to make 8 or 10 guitars including Kitty Wells, Jim Reeves, Hank Snow, Eddy Arnold, Faaron Young and others. This information was based on a phone conversation with Mark Taylor. Description. The Kitty Wells guitar is constructed of the finest of materials using hand selected tone woods.(Solid maple back and sides and a solid spruce top). and is finished a beautiful orange which brings out the beauty of the appointments.The guitar features Abalone Pearl Headstock inlaid into rosewood (Kitty Wells picture is inlaid with multi pieces of abalone pearl, also a Tennessee Banner and the name Gregory inlaid with abalone), a custom rosewood pick guard inlaid with pearl,Gold Sparkle binding on the top and around the sound hole and a hand painted picture of Kitty Wells and Hank Snow. The ebony fingerboard is inlaid with Kitty Wells name including 5 stars.and the bridge pins are inlaid with pearl. It comes equipped with Grover Keys. Condition: The overall condition of the guitar is excellent. This is not a mint condition guitar, but it is really close to mint. This is truly an Art Piece and even though the guitar is a playable instrument I doubt that anyone would play it for fear of scratching it. As a functional instrument it is set up with light gauge strings and plays fine. However the guitar has one issue in that the truss rod was installed incorrectly and is not adjustable.. This would only be needed if the guitar was played and the player wanted to adjust the feel up or down.To make it work perfectly would cost about $250 and we have lowered the price e to accommodate this even though as stated previously I doubt if anyone would play the guitar. Well that’s it. If you want a piece of County Music History what could be more striking on display in your home or office than a Hand Crafted Piece of Art in the form of a Custom Guitar.
