Dave M Guitar

This is guitar build for a local player in Des Moines, Iowa.  Dave is an active player that has been busy with many great bands over the years.  I am proud that he has decided to give Drake Custom the job of building him a custom designed guitar.  Dave plays in a party band that requires him to be able to cop many tones in order to cover the various styles needed for his gig.  He needs a “Swiss army knife” of guitars that has enough tools to get the job done.

We have chosen a beautiful piece of 5A grade figured Maple for his neck.  On top of that he will have Ebony headstock veneers and Ebony fret board.  The scale will be 25.5 inches and there will be 22 frets.  Also he has requested abalone trapezoid inlays.

The body will be Sapele with a gorgeous Burled Maple top.  This top is amazing for figure and color.

The electronics are Seymour Duncan 59′ in the neck position and JB in the bridge position.  Both will be cased in gold covers.

The hardware is custom Hipshot two tone gold/black.


This will be an amazing guitar.
