This special guitar took a year to design, construct, finish and set-up. We are proud of the collaboration of our team together with Preston’s leadership in completing the first in our Masterpiece series. This OM Shipwreck Brazilian guitar will be for sale at Dream Guitars. Here is a video about the guitar along with several production photos of the progress along the way.
