‘Derlin

Bluegrass crossbreed, the devil within. As different as, beauty, ability and power.

Body

The body is made from a laminate of solid Paduk with a figured maple front plate. The binding is usually an ebony lower strip next to the paduk, a heavily rippled maple stringer with a paduk top string. Matching paduk control cover.

Should the customer require some other timber for the front plate such as fiddle back maple or a quilted maple we are only happy to oblige. If you require a different wood not mentioned please ask.

Neck

Triple laminate neck having a core centre of Paduk and a figured maple outer laminates. A two way truss rod is installed so the neck can be adjusted either concave or convex.

The machine head has a triple veneer laminate of figured maple, silver birch, with either a rosewood or an ebonised birch veneer. the logo is laser cut in the headstock veneers. The GGV element is taken out, turned over, and replaced so logo the showing in a contrasting timber. The edge of the machine head veneers are beveled at aprox’ 30% to give the appearance of a striped binding.

The fretboard can either be Indian rosewood, Cocobolo, or figured maple.

Fret markers are either ebony, or synthetic mother of pearl. genuine M’oP’ or abalone are available as I have the shells collected from a beach in California by my uncle.

The machine head plate is a figured maple laminate with Wynnjammer laser etched between the machine heads. The fretboard is Indian rosewood bound with rippled maple frets are through cut. The neck is secured by 4x6mm stainless steel bolts burnished to a high shine the neck is secured via the body using metal inserts.
