Raw Series Descendant Alder & Zebrano

Alder, Solid Body with natural occlusion      |      Zebrano Neck & Back Plates, Ovangkol Fretboard       |      Bare Knuckle Pickups

Raw Series Descendant Holey Alder PR0008 Front


 This beautiful guitar is a one-of-a-kind, with the body made from interestingly spalted Alder.  This piece of timber would not normally have been used for a guitar body due to the natural barky occlusion in the centre.  This could have been cut in such a way as to create an interesting book-matched guitar body, but instead Crimson chooses to use the natural wood ‘defects’ as features.  The wood is pretty lightweight, but provides a gorgeous, rich tone.  The neck and Crimson style back plates are all made from Wenge.  The fretboard is Ovangkol. The hardware is all chrome and the pickups are by Bare Knuckle.
