New Build: Atlas – Purple Haze

Introducing the latest Atlas build, dubbed the “purple haze”.

It’s a 6 string, 27″ scale Baritone, featuring a bookmatched, live-edge Poinsonwood burl & resin top. The back and wing sections are made from pieces of Swamp Ash, with a purple/pink grain fill and the neck is a 5 piece Rosewood with Cocobolo fretboard.

I also decided to commission and install some more amazing Beta Blocker Pickups for this build, specifically their MASS humbucker set, with some fantastic engraved covers. These things sound huge! I primarily built this Atlas as a show-piece and these pickups really help to set it apart.

This is probably one of my favourite builds of recent years and is going to be very hard to part with!
