Return To Wood Gallery
This exquisite acoustic guitar was custom made for the woodnut by Lance McCollum. The soundboard is made from curly redwood, Sequoiadendron giganteum. The sides and back were made from fiddleback California claro walnut, Juglans hindsii. 12 species of wood were used in the construction of this McCollum masterpiece. Lance not only created something beautiful to behold he created one of the most extraordinary sounding acoustic guitars this musician has ever had the pleasure of playing. Included is a picture of Lance playing the guitar at his home on the day he called me to come and pick it up in June of 2004.
My dear friend Lance McCollum passed away on February 1, 2009. Lance touched the lives of many people in a very profound way. His memory lives on through the many musical instruments he created and the friends he made along the way.
