Warrior Custom Shop Rick Derringer Model in Splated Maple with Oiled finish
This is a Warrior Custom Shop creation with a creative use of different types of exotic woods. It is a Rick Derringer Model solid body single cutaway design with a Spalted Maple top. The body has been laminated with Burled maple on the back with walnut in between. When the body was sculpted it revealed the different textures and colors of the various woods in an artfully manner that makes this a one of a kind instrument.
It has a three pickup arrangement with matching Splated Maple covers and control knobs.
A lot of guitar manufacturers are offering Spalted Maple tops nowadays, but this one defies comparison. The fret board is made of exceptional flamed Maple with an ebony fret board. Only the photos can describe the inlay work adorning the fretboard. It is a scene of a dragon, over the devil himself, being slain by a winged knight. The inlay incorporates every color in the rainbow and continues for the length of the fretboard.
The flamed maple neck has a wide Purple Heart strip down the center that runs through the head stock. There you will find Rick Derringer’s signature. This instrument was personally signed by Rick at this years Dallas Guitar show. This is a case where the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy!
