Australian Leopard Wood 8-String
Australian Leopard Wood 8-String
2015

This is a custom 8-string Reichardt Guitar. The body is a two piece figured African Mahogany body that resonates like a bell. The top is a beautiful piece of Australian Leopard wood with a one piece maple laminate underneath it giving the guitar a very classically inspired vibe.

Built with classic inspired back and front body carves and extended horns to give extra comfort for the extended nature of the 8-string neck. The Quartersawn Wenge neck adds snap to the guitar while the figured Quartersawn Padauk fretboard add percussion to the guitar. Most important in fretboard tapping. Padauk has also been used to make xylophone and marimba keys. Throw in the Seymour Duncan BlackWinter Calibrated Set and you have one insane metal instrument that can do anything you want it to. Free Case Included. US Sales only.
