Kevin Eubanks Extended Cutaway
This is an unusual instrument I made for a great player. We’ve all seen Kevin Eubanks play electric on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show but Kevin is also a world class acoustic guitarist. Above is a video clip of Kevin playing some tasty licks on his new NGC guitar.
Kevin contacted me in 2005 about building an acoustic with a neck that allows playing access to the last fret on the fingerboard. To achieve this configuration, the neck extends into the body, and the sides fit into slots cut in the side of the neck. Classical guitars use this type of construction.
He asked for some special inlay and that his initials be inlaid on the guitar.
