One thing I know for sure is how selective Gabriel is with wood choice. When using Brazilian, it has to be of a certain grade, and you get what you pay for. When you get used to these super fast, incredible Echopark Brazilian fretboards, it's very hard to go back to anything else. This Brazilian rosewood is superb.
This guitar offers a wider frequency response than you are probably used to, stunning finish, and exceptional playability. It's very lightweight and is 100% hand carved. The neck is carved to perfection. This is not your rinky dink small modern C neck, this is the real deal 1962 Strat profile. This is a guitar that cuts. Tone controls extremely useful. Even with a fuzz pedal the treble notes cut through. Monster Strat. As always, different amps yield different results. I am amazed at what happens when I open this thing up with a little fuzz, with the 1962 Bandmaster up all the way. It instantly reminds me of Live at Leeds or Band of Gypsies. This is one high end guitar. Shows only the lightest player wear, and appears in near mint condition. The standout feature of this guitar is the overall sonics.
