Songwriter Mystic Orpheum
Custom Level Songwriter
$3,149
This Limited Edition Songwriter Mystic Orpheum is a powerhouse instrument handcrafted with stunning AAA Mystic rosewood back and sides for a beautiful dynamic range with the added power from our 1930s style top bracing. The headstock is crowned with a matching rosewood veneer for an added touch of detail. Custom hand-inlaid abalone Orpheum position markers create a dynamic fingerboard design, joined by gold Grover tuners and an L.R. Baggs Element VTC pickup. Limited to only 65 handmade premium instruments worldwide.
