Grez Guitars has unveiled its new Smugglers Bridge Folsom electric guitar.
This solidbody gets its unique name from the source of the wood used to construct it. The guitar's wood was taken from a bridge in a remote region of Northern California - used frequently by smugglers transporting then-illegal marijuana crops - that was constructed with 1,000-year-old redwood.
Aside from the redwood body, the guitar is built with a Honduran mahogany neck and Macassar ebony fingerboard.
The Smugglers Bridge Folsom is available in a number of pickup and hardware configurations, including a string-through Tele bridge, a Mastery bridge with a Bigsby or a Grez stainless steel trapeze tailpiece.
The guitar's pickguard is cut for TV Jones Universal Mount pickups, with three different pickup options available.
The Grez Smugglers Bridge Folsom guitar will be available starting July 1 for $2,880 - $3,180, depending on the guitar's configuration.
