I.L.E "THE DARKSIDE" ELECTRIC GUITAR
Awarded First Place
Awarded Standard of Excellence
Sydney Royal Easter Show 2017, Musical Instrument Predominately Made in Wood.
The Darkside is a completely handmade Electric guitar, with a Tribal inspired inlay. Constructed to be a stark and bold guitar, with the Silver Ash core laminated with figured Blackbutt facing on both back and front. And pressure stained black veneer laminated down the center. This detail is followed through the neck with its pin stripe look, and matching Blackbutt on the peg head.
The guitar has been finished off with all Kluson hardware, and some really nice tradition touches with all flat head screws and staggered machine posts. The Humbuckers are a hand wound set of dirty overdriven monsters fitting for this bold statement guitar.
The Darkside has been hand finished with White Dewaxed Shellac to show off all of the depth, and contrast in the timber work.
