More about 2022 JASON SMITH MASTERBUILT PRESTIGE ELECTRIC SEA GEMS ESQUIRE® NOS

Jason Smith, Custom Shop Master Builder and frontman for the band Echovox, commissioned Minnesota-based artist Laura Bennett to create his band’s album cover art, which was where the inspiration for the Prestige Electric Sea Gems Esquire was born. The electrifying artwork adorns a two-piece select alder body, with features including a quartersawn maple neck with a ’60-style “oval C” profile, a flat-lam rosewood fingerboard with white pearloid block inlays and heavily rolled edges for comfortable vintage feel, and a single pickup. The Electric Sea Gems Esquire is a highly alluring take on the classic original that will captivate art collectors and guitar enthusiasts alike.

This instrument is one-of-a-kind and was sold to Beh Ngiep Seng Musical Instruments, Thailand.
