If you want a truly unique gift for the guitar player in your life you just found it. This handcrafted pick box is a one of a kind item. It is made from Caribbean Rosewood, Cocobolo, and Padauk Edge Accent with Mahogany Interior . We make the top the same way we make a real guitar fretboard starting with a piece a solid Cocobolo. We slot the Cocobolo with a fret saw and use real nickel silver frets. When cutting the slots for the frets I use the same method as I do when hand sawing the fret slots on a guitar neck; then I press the frets into those slots. The fret spacing is based on a 25.5” Fender scale and include the third thru sixth frets, with 6.35 mm Abalone fret markers representing the 3rd and 5th frets. This is one of the most beautiful pick boxes you will ever find and they are unique as they are beautiful because we are the original ones who hand make these.
The inside bottom is lined with Genuine Fender® Tweed, the same material Fender used on their vintage amplifiers. I have made a lot of these boxes and up until now I have only given them to customers who buy a custom ordered guitar from the “James Jarrel Custom Shop” at New River Guitars. There is a great deal of work that goes into making one of these boxes and they are truly one of a kind. I only have a few of these to offer and after that the only way to get one will be to order a guitar from our custom shop.
