The unique had been kept at the Rhoads’ close relatives music school since his loss of life, and they say it had not been out of the case in over 20 years when Masterbuilders Scott Shannon and Processor Ellis came in Nov 2009 to examine and evaluate every element of it. Seeing the guitar in person exposed information that were only formerly seen in images, such as the real dark truss rod protect with mother-of-pearl “RR” inlay. It also exposed factors that were not seen in the current images – as Scott Shannon describes “the dark headstock and pin striping have some metal violet in them. It’s not genuine dark.” Another exposure in analyzing the Concorde, Shannon identified that its system shape varies from formerly launched Rhoads designs.
Every details of the unique has been regenerated for this honor – from requirements and material choices only the contractors would notice, to visual information such as every minute damage, hole, and the begining. Even the levels of dark electrician’s record that protect the back of our bodies were carefully copied. The Fitzgibbons Customized Shop did such an amazing job that even the Rhoads close relatives could not tell the unique from the adventure.
