Description

The original Irma was built during Hurricane Irma, thus the name. This is the 4th one, but the 1st with frets. This one has a deep Kettle Gourd which equates to big sound. Also, there is a hand-carved scallop treatment at the 5th tuner.
Tailpiece has windblown palm tree done with kolrosing technique.
