Crafter Anniversary Models – A History
Every year since Crafter’s 30th Anniversary, Crafter has designed a new decorative Anniversary guitar model*. Building upon their reputation for beautiful abalone and wood inlays, each guitar is sketched, designed, cut and hand crafted into each guitar. Some Anniversary models are only available for a single year and others are brought back due to popularity. Previously available in two options: Bubinga or Rosewood back and sides with solid Engelmann spruce tops. Now available with solid backs (Mahogany or Rosewood) and the addition of ‘PLUS’ in the model name to indicate a premium solid wood construction.
*Except for in 2003 when the Special Edition GAE45 ‘Tree of Life’ design was introduced.
