❌ SOLD ❌ David Nichols 00 Body Steel String Guitar, 2002

Here’s a rare treat – from 2002, a David Nichols 00 Body Steel String Guitar, at Custom Pearl Inlay in Whippleville, New York. Nichols has been the mainstay of the C F Martin inlay department since the late 1960’s and builds guitars and mandolins under his own name. This fine instrument is in very good condition. Built using the classic Martin 00 design, this guitar uses Bearclaw-figured Sitka Spruce for the top, Brazilian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The top is braced with a forward shifted, scalloped layout.
