In fact, strung with light gauge steel strings, the sound of his parlor guitars has been said to equal, and possibly surpass, the sound of the bigger Martins of the same era. Most examples of his 6 string flattops known today are of rather simple designs, but he did make some high-end and presentation guitars This is such a presentation instrument! On it he used elephant ivory for the nut, saddle, pyramid bridge, bridge pins, and end pin; genuine tortoise shell from the Hawksbill turtle: But maybe the most unusual feature of this guitar is its “D’Angelio-style” headstock: Bohmann used this carved finial design some 40 plus years before John D’Angelio made it his trademark. Bohmann used the finest materials and spared no expense to complete this special presentation guitar, which we know by the plaque on the headstock was given as a Christmas gift in The guitar has amazing volume; excellent separation and balance. Great projection, especially when strung with steel strings.

Construction[ edit ] Unlike the primary instruments of most musicians, the Red Special was built by its player, May, along with his father. The neck was constructed from wood from a “hundred-year-old-ish” fireplace mantel  that a friend of the family was about to throw away. The neck was hand-shaped into the desired form, a job that was made more difficult by the age and quality of the wood. According to May, there are worm holes in the neck of the guitar that he filled in with matchsticks.
Each of the position inlays was hand shaped from a mother-of-pearl button. The body was made from blockboard strips of softwood sandwiched between two plywood skins  with oak inserts in the top and bottom layers sourced from an old table. It was covered with mahogany marquetry veneer on the top, bottom and side to give it the appearance of a solid-body guitar. The final result was technically a semi-acoustic guitar. White plastic shelf edging was then applied to the top and bottom edges to protect them from damage.
The guitar features three single-coil pick-ups and a custom-made aluminium bridge. May purchased a set of Burns Tri-Sonic pick-ups and covered the coils of two with Araldite epoxy to reduce microphonics.

The rare old Fender and Gibson “lawsuit” replicas that can be found are extremely accurate in their attention to detail that the original Fender and Gibsons had. The headstock logos were dead ringers from 15 feet away.
On the Revival Stratocaster, the saddles were stamped like Fenders, except bore the F. Other details were uncanny, too, in their replication of the Fender Strat. The Tele was just as meticulously cloned as well.

Download Discography Here “It’s hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell. Mixing rock and country with jazz and blues, he’s found what connects them: Unlike other pastichists, who tend to duck passion, Mr. Frisell plays up the pleasure in the music and also takes on another often-avoided subject, tenderness.
