Howie Escape Series 2016 (Isbell)

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

This is the 6th Howie Escape built in the 2016 series we named Isbell after one of our musical heroes, Jason Isbell.  Just like all of our guitars this guitar is completely hand built here in Longmont Colorado USA. The case and strap are included in the sale.  

All of my Escape Series guitars have a very unique sound because of the nautilus shell body chambers and the “HOT” Parsons Street Humbucker pickup on the bridge. This pickup is wound extra to 9.5k OHMS to give a wonderful bite while the bridge pickup is a normal wind Parsons Humbucker giving a buttery blues sound. Please check out the video to hear the guitar and learn more about how it was built.  

This particular escape is unique in that it has double cutaways similar to the Bull Series Bass. In the video we show a veritone push pull knob, but since the video was made the wiring was changed to standard two volume and two tone where the tone is on a stacked concentric pot.  The fretboard of this Escape is unique in that it is built out of Coco Bolo wood and the inlays are made from deer antler.  There is a small flaw in the finish on the top side that you can see in the pictures.  I have dropped the price quite a bit on this guitar because I have been personally playing her in gigs and so she has some ware and tear such as light scratches on the back of the finish and pick guard.  Here are more specs....
