The Bengals Theme guitar was a collaboration with and artist “Rally Horton” because we were inspired by the Bengals doing so well last year. He did the illustration on the sound board. I built the guitar and completed all the inlay work and then gave the body to Rally to do his beautiful artwork. The illustration includes Mike Brown, Marvin Lewis, Andy Dalton, AJ Green and most of the other Bengal players, it also includes the skylight of Cincinnati, Paul Brown Stadium, and much, much more. You can look at it for hours and still find new things.


 

The inlay on this guitar is all Mother of Pearl and Abalone. The Bengals Helmet in the sound hole is a pick-up and can easily be removed to make it full acoustic. The top is Sitka spruce…the illustration is done in ink directly on the soundboard and then covered with Lacquer so the sound is not compromised. The back and sides are East Indian Rosewood with Honduras Mahogany neck and ebony fretboard. The orange color on the Head and helmet and binding is a dyed maple veneer, not painted.
