Masterfully blending modern engineering and design with centuries old finishing techniques, the Orion Terra Series Shou Sugi Bursts are truly a melding of modern marvel and traditional craft.
The Shou Sugi Burst, executed by master finisher Rick Fusco, utilizes the Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban, a process of charring wood and finishing with natural oils and dyes, to create truly one of a kind burst style finished without using toxic commercial finishing products.
Each body has hundreds of hours of hands on finishing and cure time that when combined with locally sourced one piece curly maple result in simply stunning guitars that exemplify the marriage of modern and traditional processes.
Topped off with our top-of-the-line black anodized HollowCore™ aluminum guitar necks with woven carbon fiber fretboards, polished brass nut, locking tuners and impeccable fretwork, you receive a truly awe inspiring instrument.
Expertly set up with ultra low action these guitars play with ease and fluidity. The extraordinary resonance of the one piece bodies matched with the articulation of our hollow aluminum necks feeds creative inspiration through your fingertips.
Custom Notes: This is the fifth ever Shou Sugi Ban Burst finish. It is also the first and only Natural Burst of its kind currently in existence.
