Based on our best-selling Madison RK-R25 platform, the Madison Special has gone through extensive upgrades, beginning with an original hexagonal tube-and-plate flange. It has a pot metal tension hoop and features hand-engraved hardware by Greg Rich.

We've finished it in a dark tobacco brown nitrocellulose lacquer with antiqued binding and peghead with vintage-style MOP fan inlay.

The Madison Special is a one-of-a-kind collector's piece hand-crafted in the USA from top-shelf components.
