Here is a brand new Pittman T Artist being made available direct. This is not an instrument that was ordered by someone and the guy backed out, nothing like that. Just an instrument I felt like building and putting out. Pittman only makes about 30 completely handmade guitars a year, and as such they are a bit hard to come by, and people who have them, don't seem to let go of them. Here is a chance to get one, a top of the line one at that, without having to wait for months.
