Sam wanted a Virgil Guitar! We put together a custom build for Sam exactly to his specs - he really liked my Skull Yeah guitar so that was a great start... the looks, the feel and Sam wanted something NOT shiny and Midnight Rider was the result. This guitar has such a great feel to it and I can't wait to hear the music Sam plays on it! 15 tonal possibilities and a lifetime of music is to be created on this gem!!
