This guitar was build to fulfill a promise to Pablo Cohen. After playing the prototype for the Bent Top Guitar (#50), Pablo asked me to please have that guitar for his Winter Guitar Festival on February 22, 2003. It was sold just a few weeks later at the GFA in Miami. This guitar features the Bent Top and the Player Response system.

The top is very old spruce. The finish is French polish with the top only French polish and the sides and back with a light over coat of lacquer over the French polish. The backs and sides are Indian Rosewood. The bindings are highly figured curly maple and the rosette is hand made by Jim Holler from spalted maple. The inner ring of the rosette is curly maple and extends to the sound hole. The guitar includes a deluxe plush lined plywood case with a case cover. This guitar will be shown at the Ithaca Guitar Festival, but it is already sold. If you are interested in the next guitar like this one, Trinity Guitar 58, please contact Jim Holler. Number 58 is currently under construction
