The finest choice of pernambuco wood is used on Special Edition bows. The frogs have a distinct
style and are individually made from high quality ebony, fitted with gold or sterling silver and
beautiful abalone details. Makers of Special Edition bows had the privilege to apprentice under
the guidance of Mr. Pierre Guillaume at his atelier in Brussels. These bows are also available
with fleur-de-lys inlayed ebony frogs. Please inquire.
