"Special K " Model

Designer's note from Jol Dantzig:
"Hamer's latest addition to the Designer Gallery is actually a pair of models; the The single pickup Ecstacy and the two pickup Special K. I wanted to create a short run of African Limba guitars that were simple, to the point yet complex when studied in detail. In short, you can't judge this book by its cover—as good looking as the cover may be."
