Through satellite photos and computer analysis, scientists have estimated that there are approximately 400 Billion trees on the planet. Of that number, only one tree has ever been found to have this unique pattern. Thus it is called "The Tree". When you see the pattern, you know it immediately. So distinct, beautiful and mesmerizing. Honestly, any pictures do it a disservice in its beauty. 

The Legacy Trio consists of an Electric Hollow Body guitar with a 17" single piece carved back from "The Tree".  A wedge-shaped bass, with Linda Manzer's wedge design that also has a 17" single-piece carved back, an acoustic with a 17" single-piece flat back. The pickup is a Bartolini with the Ribbecke Logo on it. Don't know of too many other Bartolini with a luthier logo on them.

This electric hollow body is the only guitar in the world that features a single-piece carved back made of the tortoiseshell figuring from The Tree. This instrument was made by master luthier Tom Ribbecke, the headstock inlay was done by master inlay artist Larry Robinson who did the inlay work on Martin's 1 millionth guitar.

These guitars are listed separately and the price of each is reflected in each listing.

One last detail about this guitar that relates one of the founding fathers of this country. Dr. Benjamin Rush.

There is also a coin from 1806, a 25¢ piece that is embedded in the back of the headstock.  The coin belonged to Dr. Bejamin Rush, an original signer of the Declaration of Independence, Surgeon General to George Washington and Medical supervisor of the Lewis and Clark expedition and also considered the father of American Psychiatry.
