Iris MS-00 12 Fret – Reclaimed Redwood & Brazilian Rosewood

Serial Number: 857
Weight: 3 lbs 14 oz

The MS-00 was developed on the insistence of Mark Stutman of Folkway Music, for whom it’s named. This mid-thirties style guitar, with its short scale, is a wonderful complement to our line of small bodied Iris. Mark is a very talented luthier who is considered to be the expert in vintage Gibson guitars.

This highly customized 12 Fret example features a unique tonewood combination of Reclaimed Redwood and Brazilian Rosewood. The bridge and fingerboard are also made of Brazilian Rosewood, and are a beautiful compliment to the rest of the tonewoods in this guitar. This guitar was showcased at the 2024 Winter NAMM Show.
