American Estates: Jody Davis Cardinal Bent Apple with Mastodon Ivory (A) (2006)

Product Number: 004-009-5653

As the rock star of pipes, Jody Davis carves briar like he's shredding a guitar. What we essentially have, if you can pardon the musical puns, is a Danish rhythm; Davis taking their minimalist flow to the extreme and playing off of the "Cardinal" finish. It's a process that begins with perfect straight grain and birdseye, then is accompanied by an elaborate layering process applied by using a chorus of stains, then cured, hand sanded, re-applied, then buffed to a high gloss. It's so complex, that the session usually takes many hours to complete, but in the end the visual harmony it produces is ravishingly beautiful, as he arranges the composition within the natural structure of the briar. Playing the soloist is a strap of mastodon ivory around the stem, adding a bit of razzle-dazzle to an other-wise classic, flawlessly executed piece.
