This special guitar is a tribute to the Island of Hawai’i and their people who endured and those that lost during the eruption of Fissure 8 in 2018. I started building this guitar when the eruption started. Each day I worked on it I felt for my brothers and sisters on the other side of my Big Island home. I looked out of the shop and the ocean had disappeared beneath the VOG.
My lungs suffered from the harsh chemicals in the air produced by the volcano… yet like the rest of this island paradise I survived and endured stronger.
This build was new territory for me using new methods and the results are just deserve as a tribute to the land which was reclaimed by Madam Pele. The flag is tattered and the edges are singed, but in tact and whole she remains.
This guitar features an inlaid cloth Hawaiian state flag and a multi depth unique red/silver and black finish.
