The Blower

To blow, or to play or make sound on an instrument. Example: “Man, that cat can blow!”

This instrument is no. 8 in a series of Korina Tulsa proofs—each one being slightly different. This example features a flamed korina back and a highly figured maple top. The rosewood fingerboard is marked with pearl dots and a full “Claw” inlay at the 12th fret. Side markers are genuine mother of pearl. This guitar has the first generation control cavity, which is fully shielded with defense contractor-grade nickel RF shield paint. A single volume and one tone control (utilizing a vintage Sprague Black capacitor from Jol’s stash!

German carve figured maple over figured korina body and neck (upgrades) with stunning hand-rubbed violin lacquer finish in amberburst nitro. Nickel hardware including a 30 gram aluminum wraparound bridge. 25.5″ compensated scale. 7 lbs/9 oz.

A bonus—the knobs go to eleven.
