Scott sold the previous Montrose he had built for himself so it was time to build one for himself. This stunning Montrose Signature guitar features Indian Rosewood back and sides with a stunning bear claw Sitka Spruce top. Scott incorporated an arm bevel featuring flutes from the Kevin Ryan flute design. He likes to call his guitar "The Tarantula" since the natural grain in the guitar back resembles a spider. This is a fabulous sounding guitar.
Scott had the opportunity to build a baritone guitar for recording artist Trent Willmon of Nashville, TN. This beautiful guitar features solid Claro Walnut back and sides with a Sitka Bear Claw Spruce top.
Trent selected a dreadnought body style for his guitar. The ebony fret board is complete with the artists personal logo at the 3rd fret.
If you've ever played a baritone guitar you know the joy of having lower registers at your fingertips. The coolest thing about a baritone guitar is that you can use all of your chord shapes for standard tuning, making the adjustment to the lower tonal starting that much easier.
The guitar pictured here was built for a wonderful singer/songwriter in New Mexico. She chose solid Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides. Scott chose solid Lutz Spruce for the top. The combination of tone woods produce a rich articulate voice that resonates like no other. We had a hard time putting this guitar in the case for shipping because it was so much fun to play. Accents such as water buffalo tuning knobs, bridge pins and end pin adds that distinctive touch of class.
