Monaco Quilt-Work - built for Lyle Workman
"We've worked with a lot of really great musicians over the years, and Lyle tops that list. If you don't know his music take a listen, it's an uplifting (and humbling) experience. Lyle stands out as a master of his chosen instrument, and is a great human being, so each time we build a guitar for him the pleasure for me is extra intense.
The idea here was to make a hybrid Monaco that had the flair of the maple topped SuperPro, but with the open sound of the F-hole version. Lyle wanted it to be appointed like the best Jazz guitars from the 1950s, without being overly gaudy."
