American Estates: Joe Nelson “Old Nellie Pipes” Sandblasted Bulldog (2012)
Product Number: 004-009-5150
Joe Nelson is a luthier (that is, guitar-maker) as well as a pipemaker, and so it's little surprise that his pipes display very crisp design and a fine precision of fit and finish - things clearly in evidence here. His background also makes his signature iridescent abalone inlay stem mark, however novel it may seem within the specific context of pipedom, pretty intuitive, given that it's commonly used as an accent amongst artisan luthers.
