A Jason Isbell Christmas present

December 27th, 2019

We’re a fan of Jason’s music, and were particularly pleased last year when he and his wife and bandmate Amanda Shires were shown in a two page spread in Rolling Stone with their large walnut Guitar Habitat® purchased from Carter Vintage Guitars.

This year for Christmas, we delivered a custom cabinet for Jason’s 1959 Les Paul “Red Eye” formerly owned by Ed King of Lynyrd Skynyrd.  It was a present from Amanda. We were honored to build a home for this historic instrument.

The cabinet is a custom version of our single guitar “Nashville” cabinet. Unique elements are a flame maple face frame, a black back, and a hand carved solid ebony handle. Jason was kind enough to post a photo of it with Red Eye inside on Instagram.
