Joshua Tree Samick Strat

This old lefty Samick Strat, I recently re-finished for Gene Evaro Jr. and turned it into a Joshua Tree Samick Strat.  He thought he was going to get a big paisley design. Instead I decided to surprise him with a Joshua tree scene since he hails from the magic little town of Joshua Tree, in the high desert of Southern California.

This was an exciting project for both of us because this guitar would be Gene’s very first guitar that would have the hardware, knobs, input etc. in the right place. Gene has always played left handed and upside down so this will be a whole new world for him. He is truly a stellar musician and an amazing person! I am honored to call him my friend and my family. I can’t wait to watch him burn down the house with his band genejrandthefamily , his new guitar in hand. Blessings MT
