More about Melanie Steinway "Tribal Moth" Dreadnought

The Fender Acoustic Custom Shop’s Collector Custom Series pairs our finest instruments with the talents of highly regarded contemporary graphic artists. With our guitars as their canvases, the results are one-of-kind acoustic instruments of fascinating creativity and personality—great-sounding and highly distinctive-looking collectors items to be cherished by a fortunate few.

From the mind of talented graphic artist Melanie Steinway comes a new variation on a Fender Acoustic Custom Shop instrument. Steinway used a meticulous wood-burning technique to apply her creative imagery to this elegant moth-themed Collector Custom Series dreadnought acoustic, creating a limited edition of one. The Acoustic Custom Shop then finished the instrument, with remarkable features including a solid Engelmann spruce top; solid mahogany back and sides; bone nut, saddle and bridge pins; nitrocellulose lacquer finish; and Fishman® electronics for superb amplified tone.
