Simon Haycraft and co at Preston Thompson Guitars have rendered a 00 quite unlike any other. This is Masterpiece #2, the Koi Pond 00 in Quilted Maple and Adirondack Spruce. Sadly, we lost founder Preston Thompson before this masterwork instrument could be finished, but Simon was able to share aspects of the design with him.

And what a design this is—a sprawling path of Koi fish and waterlilies inlaid along the fretboard and headstock, echoed by the one-of-a-kind scene on the back with Simon’s stain and finish techniques. The result is a three-dimensional effect of the Quilted Maple grain playing with the Koi fish; something we’ve never quite seen before.
This second Masterpiece earns its name proudly, and we’re proud to offer it to you.

We and the PKT team will donate 10% of the proceeds from the sale to in honor of Preston, and , the organization that cared for Preston in his illness. This is an opportunity to not only acquire an utterly unique instrument, but also to give back to both the Bluegrass community which supports Preston Thompson Guitars, and to local Bend, Oregon health care providers.
