Martin Dixon Marquetry Strat


Apologies for the quality of this photo. I have enhanced it because the original picture from the eBay auction page looked as if it was taken through a fog of pea soup.

This Strat-type guitar is a one-off featuring a top created using marquetry, which, if you don't know, is the craft of covering a structural carcass with pieces of veneer forming decorative patterns, designs or pictures (Wikipedia). It's similar to a mosaic, but in wood.

It was crafted by UK luthier Martin Dixon and you will see other marquetry guitars at his website. His guitar prices start at £950 ($1,425) so if this guitar appeals you could get a very good deal in this eBay auction.
