Take a look at this rare stunner. Mr. Bartlett's at the top of his game and this fine specimen is proof positive of it. Brazilian rosewood. OX4 pickups. Light relic'ing. Old growth mahogany-check out the tight grain and cathedral figuring; such a rarity in new growth mahogany guitars.

The nitro formula Tom uses is similar to what was used in 1959 both in feel, texture, and appearance. So buttery smooth feeling on the neck, no gumminess at all, unlike any modern nitro I've felt.

If you've played a Bartlett or other replicas you're familiar with their overall clarity and liveliness and this one is no exception.

IMO the cleans on this one are airier and have more "detail" surrounding the notes than off the shelf single cuts I've played.

Using calipers neck thickness is
1st fret- .875
12th fret- .937
Nut width- 43mm

Originally $7850, now *SOLD* shipped to the continental US only.

Sorry, no trades.

Truly a stunner. Love Tom's work. Can you describe the neck carve? Do you have dimensions? Many thanks.

Yup, Tom's truly a master at his craft.
He based the neck profile on 4 original '59s he has access to.

Not the best at describing neck profiles, but feels like a '59 "c" shape, and has less shoulders than a modern RI. Fits the hand like a glove IMO.
