The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Harrison GB Custom Redwood Burl Top, 2017


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Here is a lovely Harrison GB Custom Redwood Burl top thinline archtop, built in Toronto during 2017 and based on a design for the late jazz artist Gary Benson.

Douglas Harrison has been building arched top guitars for some years now and his GB Custom has been very popular, with most I have seen being true custom models, with varying tops and hardware configurations.

This Harrison GB Custom Redwood Burl example uses a spectacular piece of Redwood Burl for the top, carved with two F-holes. The rest of the body is African Mahogany. The neck is of three piece Tropical Mahogany construction with Gabon Ebony used for the fingerboard, tailpiece and bridge.  The frets are jumbo, very cleanly installed, dressed and polished. Hardware includes Gotoh tuners with Ebony buttons, a Lindy Fralin 8.5k humbucker and master volume and tone controls. The Tone pot is a push/pull model, wired to put the pickup coils in series or parallel.     

This Harrison GB Custom Redwood Burl is in excellent condition with only the slightest wear. It’s very well set up; Douglas Harrison has also spent quite some time doing very high quality repairs and knows his way around a setup. It is sold with its original Ameritage hard shell case.
