GJÂ² has shared a video and short article on Tom’s first meeting with his new amazing custom-made guitar, the Zora 3.
You can also check out some incredible photos of his new guitar both on his blog and GJÂ²’s website.
GJÂ² Guitars — Sheâ€™s been black, then white, and now sports the â€œall-naturalâ€ look. And sheâ€™s not even finished changing yet.
Tom Dumont just picked up his third incarnation of the GJÂ² Zora model guitar, and heâ€™s enjoying the variety so far. â€œPrototyping is a processâ€ as the No Doubt guitarist described it, and Tom is continuing to explore different variations to find out what his ideal version of Zora will be. This latest prototype model is made of Sapele wood (similar to mahogany) from Africa, with an oiled finish to bring out the beautiful grain pattern. New options for this version include a floating Gotoh tremolo bridge, and two GJÂ² Habanero humbucker pickups with a coil tap. The ebony fingerboard again features the art deco-inspired chevron inlay motif.
Tom posted some terrific photos on his blog as soon as he got back home. (She looks pretty on pink!)
What will Zora number 4 look like? Stay tuned to find out. Better yet, subscribe to the blog and our social sites.
In the meantime, watch our little home movie, below. (Yeah, weâ€™re better at making guitars than videos.) Itâ€™s like eavesdropping on Tomâ€™s first meeting with Zora #3 and hearing his reaction. Enjoy the photos, too.
