|2000 Orchid Premier
Maker: Orchid Guitars
Bought From: Orchid Guitars
Comments: The Orchid was made by a really great guy who happens to be a former guitar student (I'd like to take some credit for his guitar building talent & skill, but I'm afraid that is really not justifiable).
The Orchid is an all solid-wood, hand carved instrument. The top is German Spruce, the back, sides and neck are Maple. It's even more beautiful in person than the photos show. In particular the top is gorgeous and there is a lovely subtle flame on the back.
This instrument is flat wonderful, and I consider myself fortunate to be the first to buy one from him. You can contact him at Orchid Guitars if you'd like more information. The sound is awesome and the workmanship is immaculate. You'd better hurry, because he is more getting orders and there's only one of him.
