Made for us by Master builder Laurie Grundy from Australia. He uses the same 1934 metal formula for the tone ring, flange and tension hoop. Beautifully inlaid with metal, and shell by Inlay artist Denis Eastmure. Featuring the Hoppers tuners and engraved mother-of-pearl tribute to Lonnie Hoppers. It has a repaired crack on the back side of the headstock, but is practically invisible.
