Preowned. Circa 1994. Custom Pegasus Guitar. Beautiful Pegasus 6-String Guitar handcrafted by luthier Bob Gleason of Kurtistown, HI. Bob handcrafts some of not only the most aesthetically pleasing guitars and ukuleles available on the market but also professional recording level instruments for both the professional musician and recreational player.
Built with a big and bold sound in mind, this guitar is great for both travel and stage performance. It has all the benefits of a slightly smaller sized body with the volume and projection of a full-sized instrument. The back and sides of the instrument are made of Hawaiian Koa wood, handpicked on the Island of Hawai’i and the soundboard was fashioned from musician’s grade Bear Claw Sitka Spruce. The neck has been carved from solid Honduran mahogany wood with an adjustable truss rod accessed from the inside of the body for fine adjusting, if necessary. The fretboard has been slightly radiused for ease of play on the wrist angle of the player and is crafted of Gabon Ebony wood with a signature Pegasus designed Rosewood bridge. Ebony wood bridge pins with abalone shell inlay. Rosewood top and back binding. The Hawaiian Koa back and sides presents an elegant contrast with that of the Sitka spruce. Gorgeous matching master grade Gabon Ebony wood headstock veneer giving the instrument a regal and aesthetic appeal. Gorgeous abalone shell rosette and a mother-of-pearl ‘Pegasus’ logo inlay on the headstock and diamond shaped abalone shell position markers on 3,5,7,9,12, and 15. The heel cap also has a hand-cut piece of Rosewood. All the shell inlay is solid shell. No laminates were used. The tuners are professional Schaller close-geared tuners for precise tuning. Strap button at butt of the instrument. Micarta saddle and nut with a high gloss poreless nitrocellulose finish.
All of Bob’s guitars and ukuleles are meticulously crafted from the finest materials and with stunning attention to detail. They are amongst the most sought after ukuleles and yet some of the most difficult to acquire. A true work of art aesthetically with some of the cleanest luthiery techniques employed by the 21st century ukulele luthier. Bob’s instruments have perfectly set intonation, are very cleanly built, and offer precise tones all the way up the neck. The Hawaiian Koa wood back and sides and Bear Claw Sitka Spruce soundboard give this instrument a nice warm and balanced tone with clean notes all the way up the neck.
