    These guitars are made exclusively for Chickenbone John Guitars to our specifications in a small workshop in Shanghai. We aim to bring you the best balance of performance, authentic retro appearance and a keen price. The logo is inspired by the Oscar Schmidt Stella guitars of the 1930s, and these guitars bear the name of my daughter, named after her great grandmother.

     These guitars are brand new into our workshop, and numbers are very limited. SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY PRICE  - this will only be available for the first two of each model.
