Chrysalis Guitar

The Company was commissioned by Chrysalis Guitar/Timothy White in 1999 to develop his semi-functional prototype into a producable and presentable guitar.  25 complete guitars were ultimately made, and are now owned by such notables as John Sebastian, Timothy Richards/Palm Guitar, Harvey Mandell and Larry Fishman/Fishman Pickups.
