The EIR Back & Sides and the Spruce top are from Whitebook’s wood that has been stored since 1980.
In the 1970s, Whitebook had a cult following for his handmade guitars.
His client list included James Taylor, Carly Simon, Phil Keaggy and Clarence White. But in
1980, having built around 70 instruments total, Whitebook stopped building guitars.
In 2015 Whitebook returned to building for a short time. Using the same tools and wood he had
stored, brought his total guitar builds to 99.
