This pen is simply amazing. The details and inlay work always draw attention and comments. The design is made from multiple pieces of laser cut wood, assembled by hand, and finished to a glossy shine. The detail will amaze music lovers! You can even see the guitar’s certificate of authenticity through the sound-hole. The wood used for the hand inlaid design includes yellow cedar, curly koa, blackwood, and red dyed black ash burl. The frets in the fingerboard are hand cut and placed from .003″ aluminum shims, and silver rod is used for the dots. The metal pen components are made of the highest quality titanium gold and black titanium. I handcraft all my pens using only the finest materials available. I take time to make sure every detail is perfect. This pen has been sanded and polished in a 20 step process that leaves a strong and durable acrylic finish. This pen uses standard Parker style refills, and I have upgraded from standard ballpoint ink to a Parker style black gel refill. The writing nub is extended by a simple twist of the pen. BONUS!! Included with every guitar pen is a beautifully detailed 5.52″ Wood Pearlized Guitar Ornament that is a unique way to add to the décor of any guitarist or music-lover. This guitar is completely detailed with strings, tuning pegs, frets, and pearlized wooden body. It comes in a detailed red-lined black hinged case, complete with gold buckles and a black handle.
