Scheerhorn Rob Ickes Custom L Body (Pre-Owned 2016)
If this was your first introduction to a Scheerhorn, it is hard to imagine wanting any other squareneck resonator in your arsenal. Known for his obsessive quality, powerful cones, and famous "wishlist" guitars, Tim Scheerhorn has become the standard among squareneck enthusiasts around the globe.
Once headed for a career in engineering, Tim changed courses to become a luthier. Working with some of the best resophonic experts in the world (Don Young and company at National Guitars), Tim redesigned the square neck from the ground up. Making each cone by hand, Tim developed resophonic instruments that were louder and fuller than any square neck ever made. Today, his guitars can easily be recognized by their signature sound and design, even down to their hidden baffels inside.
Recently, Tim commissioned the talented team at National to build guitars using his design and name. Handcrafted in San Luis Obispo to Tim's unique specifications, each guitar sounds, looks and plays just like one of Tim's wishlist guitars without the years long waitlist.
Unlike the catalog National Scheerhorn Rob Ickes model, this guitar is one of a few custom examples to ever leave the factory. Featuring a custom sunburst body and Honduran Mahogany back and sides, this instrument is one of a kind. From our experience, the Adirondack top enjoys being played heavily and produces a loud bark ideal for bluegrass ensembles. Paired with Mahogany back and sides, each note is clean and clear.
W. T.'s take:
"This guitar would make a great addition to any collection! It plays like new without the new price!"
This gently loved Scheerhorn is in Excellent + Condition with some light pick scratches around the coverplate and includes the original hardshell case.
Notes about this guitar:
This guitar has been modified to include a Fishman Jerry Douglas spider cone pickup. It has had ebony tuner buttons added in place of the factory chrome knobs (the originals are included in the case). Lastly, purchasing this guitar will include the factory spider. The factory Scheerhorn cone has not been removed or changed. Please see our photographs for more details.
