Description

I am reluctantly going to sell my custom built Sho-Bud Maverick. This guitar was custom built by Doug Earnest who builds Zum Stage One guitars out of Branson, MO.
The body was refinished and inlaid by the late Ray Walker. The under carriage is a Stage One which is a 3x4, E9 setup. The Sho-Bud has it's original pickup and sounds like a Sho-Bud. Great. It has custom screw-in legs and all the parts are polished.
This guitar was made for Boo Miller who played it in Branson on the Always, Patsey and Joey Riley (RIP) shows according to Doug. I bought it about 1 1/2 years ago thinking I would learn to play it but I got sidetracked on playing the Weissenborn guitar instead. Needs to be played so I'm letting it go.
Here is a youtube of Boo playing it at a SG meeting in Texas a couple of years ago.

The guitar sounds great and light enough to travel with.
Here are the pictures when I bought it thanks to a forum member I bought it from.
By the way, I will forword the emails from Doug Earnest about the guitar to whoever buys it. It's a one off, for sure. Please use my email address if interested, asimon2511@yahoo.com .
Thanks, Alan
