The Money Shot: Crimson Guitars Custom Shop PAF Hollow Copper
Crimson Guitars is based in an old dairy in rural Dorset. Headed up by Master Luthier Ben Crowe, the company specialises in unique distressed finishes and has racked up 14 years in the game, building instruments for the likes of Robert Fripp and Goldfrapp bassist Charlie Jones along the way.
As well as striking musical instruments, Crimson also produces a full range of guitar-building tools and luthier supplies, and operates an online guitar-making school with over 350 video tutorials.
This PAF Hollow Copper model showcases Crowe’s amazing approach to finishing, with an aged and patinated solid copper top and a meranti back, sides and neck finished in copper leaf and Crimson’s proprietary finishing oil.
