Check Out The Amazing Chicago Skyline On This Guitar

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 19, 2015 8:00PM

We've seen some pretty stunning guitars in our time, but this special edition guitar, dubbed the Chicagoan, created by Koentopp Guitars is one of the best. Luthier Dan Koentopp has created a business crafting hand built guitars for his clients and has proven himself to be quite gifted in this area.

For this model, after deciding on the exquisite body design, Koentopp enlisted the aid of fellow artist Larry Robinson to create a stylized Chicago skyline to run down the full length of the guitar's fretboard. The end result is what Koentopp describes as "The most Chicago Chicagoan," and it's a collaboration that does the city proud. Koentopp was kind enough to allow us to share a few photos from his site to showcase the end result, but we recommend reading his own detailed post following the creation of this unique guitar from start to finish.
