(SOLD!) Iceman Inspired Tantalum Model - Richlite Top + SpectraLum Inlays©!

Discover my latest Iceman inspired creation, showcasing the exclusive 'Hufschmid SpectraLum Inlays©'—a first in the world of guitar making! 

It's not every day you come across a small artisan luthier who actually designs his very own solid brass humbucker mounting rings. This journey, blending artistry with innovation, has led to something truly unique – a rare find in today's market. Gone are the days of settling for seven-string mounting rings made of cheap plastic. My approach? Solid brass mounting rings, finished in a sleek matte black, offering beauty, unparalleled quality, and durability unlike anything else.

The one-piece body and neck of this unique Iceman-inspired guitar are made from perfectly quarter-sawn 'Sipo Mahogany', complemented by a West African Ebony fingerboard. Another main feature of this guitar is the top, which is a single piece of Richlite—a paper composite alternative that gives the instrument an incredible industrial and high-tech look.
