Burl, the exceptionally creative craftsman and luthier of Burl’s Art, used his love for lighter guitars to build the thinnest guitar possible. He used a beautiful black limba wood for the body and a gorgeous flame maple for the neck-through fretboard, shaping each to create a narrow profile. He also added colorful pickups. When he was finished, the guitar measured a miniscule 19 millimeters (3/4 inch) and weighed only 4.5 pounds. Unlike many of his other guitars, this one is for sale.
