Welcome to Crimson Guitars and Ben's home workshop. This is the new midweek series where Ben builds a unique fanned fret / multiscale kit guitar. This is the brand new Uncut, Fanned Fret Kit Guitar from Crimson that Ben has been looking forward to launching for a long time -

In this episode, Ben continues sanding and buffing the finish to get a perfect matte look on the back of the guitar. He also does a Level, Crown, and Polish ready for set-up.
Onto another topic, the Vintage Tool Shop is having a 10% off EVERYTHING Sale. This sale will end on May 14th.

This Kit is tailored to those who want to create their own body and headstock shape. The Uncut Body and Paddle Headstock are a blank canvas ready for your creativity to be let loose.
