the Shari Ulrich Songbird Model 265B – Heirloom Black

All Craven Tenor Guitars are crafted in small quantities to maintain high quality and to assure only the finest, hand selected quality woods are used.

Shari has guided us to create the Model 265B ~ Heirloom Black Songbird in a very unique fashion. Unlike other black guitars layered in heavy paint and hiding the beautiful woods underneath, Shari has challenged us to create her Black guitar so that the true solid Sitka Spruce could be seen yet have a visual feeling of a guitar lovingly crafted possibly 100 years ago.

Unlike a guitar built and finished in the relic fashion, a look of worn, road weary and mishandled instruments, Shari wanted her Heirloom black guitar to appear like it has been cared for, loved and protected in its case and allowed to age gracefully like a rare Stradivarius violin.

The 265B is carefully crafted to have the warm soft wood finish found only in guitars crafted nearly 100 years ago. Hand rubbed wood stains are eased into the solid Sitka Spruce and gracefully buffed to reveal the beautiful wood grain rather than washing it away or hiding it behind solid paint. The dark Heirloom Black shows thin allowing warm rich browns and wood grain to show through the black top surface. This very unique process makes every 265B unique yet consistently beautiful. Unlike relic guitars made to look road worn, battered and beaten, the Heirloom Black Songbird has the appearance of a treasured family heirloom passed among generations. Unlock the lush tweed hardshell case and inside awaits an O body Tenor guitar that’s part time traveler, part future family heirloom and 100% beautiful professional quality Songbird Tenor Guitar.
