On July 24, 1975, the end of the last of 3 nights performing in Asheville, NC, Elvis gave this guitar away to a member of the audience in the front row.

It was not so difficult to decide which guitar to start with in our Atrists' Tribute line. Who doesn't know Elvis Presley? His footspeps in music history will be never forgotten and his contribution to modern music is readable till now.

A customized guitar that Vernon Presley bought for his son Elvis in 1969 was one of the most photographed and well known guitars in his performing career due mostly to the use of it on the first TV performance worldwide broadcast via satellite "Aloha from Hawaii" in January 1973. The elder Presley had his son’s name inlaid in script on the guitar’s neck and changed the finish to black to celebrate his son’s recently earned black belt in karate, says the house. Marking that achievement is a sticker for Kenpo karate on the body of the instrument.

This our replica includes CITES certified Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, his hand-cut and hand-engraved name in pearl on the fingerboard, Kenpo karate decal on the top and all other details as the original and with Elvis face in pearl on the peghead as our signature is simply our tribute to this legend ...
