Everest Custom Guitars is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan (USA). They have a strong commitment to preserving both the historic roots of music and the fragile environment we live in by building many custom instruments with reclaimed woods, sustainable alternatives to exotic and endangered species, domestic hardwoods, and reused materials. You can see many examples of their work and contact them directly for a custom build of your own at

The Everest Barnstormer has a familiar "winged" body style with some variations to the classic design. This particular one is Serial #001 and features a brilliantly figured Claro Walnut top with matching headstock veneer. The body is Alder and the backplate is the same. With a Flame Maple neck and Ebony fretboard, this guitar is certainly not lacking attractive tonewoods. 

It sports the Seymour Duncan "Hot Rod" pickup set - a JB in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck. Along with the standard three-way toggle switch, each pickup has its own volume and tone control in the form of stacked pots and its own three-way mini toggle which allowing for series, split, or parallel mode and providing a plethora of sonic variations and very usable tones.
