Poisoned Ivy is the quintessential guitar when it comes to feel, weight and prospective tone. With well over 1000 man hours to make this incredible piece of craftsmanship, Poisoned Ivy is considered to be Virgil Guitars boldest attempt. It is adorned with an amazing Chinese butterfly lizard on the front of the guitar, which is inlaid on a carved top guitar (this is a rarity and very difficult to achieve) and when you flip the guitar over, it is a mirror image of everything you see on the front of the body... but with a twist... A SKELETON of the Butterfly Lizard! with Ebony vines and black mother-of-pearl ivy leaves. This guitar is the most complex build to date by Virgil Guitars totaling well over 800 pieces of inlay and taking several months to complete..
