The C.Masta 6 was commissioned by our endorsed artist, James Tomedi, from “Burial in the Sky”. He had played Carvin® guitars before and loved how they felt, but was after a custom headless of his own design.
The shape took some inspiration from our Catalyst stock models but it is very much James’s own creation. He chose an amazing Pale Moon Ebony top, which works so well with the Swamp Ash, Purpleheart and Black Palm base.
James requested a custom inlay of a lotus flower on the 1st fret and his initials on the 12th. We made these out of Pale Moon Ebony, to tie the body and neck together, aesthetically.
We went with T4M (Technology for Musicians) hardware, as they make a great headless trem system and a pair of Bare knuckle pickups® round out a great spec list for this build.
