Guitar making is working with wood, and in Indonesia there are some grand masters – Wayan Tuges in Ubud is one.
These guitars are very impressive in sound as well as looks! They are a Canada-Indonesia collaboration. Back and sides are solid Koa and tops are Red Spruce, all highly decorated with mythical themes. The bodies are asymmetrical in depth, so narrow at the top and getting wider across which makes playing a large body guitar so much more comfortable. This Dragon model is actually a short baritone which, with the lighter strings we fitted, can go up to standard E pitch, but loves being dropped down lower, a very handy feature. Comes with case and eastern mythology too.
