Howie Escape Series 2017 (Eleanor)

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

This is the first Howie Escape Guitar built in 2017. As with all of my guitars it is completely hand built here in Longmont Colorado USA.  To see a video of this guitar being built visit this link.....    

This guitar is very special because legendary blues guitarist John D'Amato took this guitar on the road for his shows while we built his signature Escape for him.  There is a picture in this listing of John using this guitar to record a radio show.

Since that radio show, this guitar has seen a lot of gigs and many great players have played this guitar.  That's why we have dropped the price quite a bit as there are some nice and scratches here and there.  the last 3 pictures show some of these.  All of this play time has just made this guitar sound that much better.  It's broken in and sounds amazing.    

Like all of the Howie Escapes, this guitar has a very unique sound because of its nautilus shell body. It is also very special because it is the first Howie guitar built with Bare Knuckle Pickups. I can honestly say these are the best pickups I have ever used in a build. They are expensive, but definitely worth it.  I have dropped the price a bit because of the minimal wear and tear of being used for several shows.  Here are the rest of the details....
