Monaco Bird's-eye 12 String

Designer's note:

"For this instrument, the guitars/customshoper asked me to use my imagination to create something unique. We love bird's-eye maple, but it's not appropriate for everything, however, a 12 string was perfect for it. It's a little over the top, but if you want to celebrate a wood type, why not? Seymour cooked up some pickups for the occasion, our guys worked their magic and everyone loved the results."

A subtle brown burst on glorious bird's-eye.
Pearl and cellulose ivoroid around the entire guitar—well over 200 pieces!


Keeping intonation precise with twelve separate saddles.
Bird's-eye neck, with a bird's-eye peghead face, cut from the same blank as the top.


The Hamer crew says goodbye to five billets of solid bird's-eye that they crafted into an awesome sounding twelve-string.
