This guitar is a copy of the Gibson Flying V. I used Maple for the body and the back is Black Walnut. The clients name was carved on the head of the guitar with some other added personal details to the back of the neck. For the finish on the body, I added a red dye to the shellac. Then the entire guitar was polished and waxed. I chose this finish hoping that the guitar would achieve a worn look, like Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar, much faster than with a lacquered finish.
