Our Authorized Dealer in Taiwan, Guitar Kids Music Center is owned by a young, smart man, Allen Chen. We met Allen a few years ago at the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, CA. Allen started studying and learning about our build process and by the next year’s show, he was ready to add our line to his shop. He has represented us very well. This past NAMM show, 2020, Allen placed an order for four custom guitars and added another one about mid-way through that batch being completed.
Enter Arrow Wei. She is a very young rising star in Taiwan and we’ve now completed a custom built OM-C Custom for her. We worked closely with Allen to make sure all specs were as she wanted including the custom artwork to be inlaid on the fretboard. A face caricature and the “ARROW WEI” signature in Abalone and Mother-of-Pearl. The top is sinker Redwood paired with sinker Mahogany back and sides. All-over bindings are bloodwood and a custom nut width of 1-11/16″ was specified. And lastly, the very pretty Maple pickguard and Gotoh tuning machines with gold buttons. We’ll post video/photos of Arrow Wei with her special guitar when provided. https://www.instagram.com/arrowwei/?hl=en
