Magpie

A Supro lapsteel pickup was brought to me years ago with the suggestion of building a guitar around it, and the Magpie is the result. The Magpie’s roar starts at the Lollar-Supro pickup and is refined by the cypress body, rosewood neck, with the copper veneer adding its own visual and sonic fingerprint as well. Think big, wide, and harmonically charged.
