Monaco Elite "Quilt Maple"

Carved front and back with matching covers and hand-wound pickups.

Designer's note:

"This was a real challenge to do because the Elite is a compact guitar and can easily be overwhelmed by a lot of fancy appointments. We brought this one right to the edge without going over."
