Traphagen Series 45 Guitars

Series 45 guitars are a batch of four guitars celebrating 45 years of stringed instrument making. These guitars were completed in 2015.

The woods on these guitars are full of unique character and sets that I have been collecting for several decades.

Spruce tops with bear claw patterns or amazing amounts of cross silk, cedar tops with rippling flame patterns.

Brazilian rosewood with spider web grain or other very rare patterns and colors. All the woods have exceptional tonal qualities.

The tuners are either Rodgers or Graf engraved with the traditional Esteso design.

Each one of these guitars will be unique and one of a kind, to be treasured for many years to come.
