This particular guitar has the fairly wide neck dimensions copied from the original, but the fingerboard has a more pronounced radius. The top of this guitar is European spruce and the back and sides are made from a beautifully figured piece of rosewood that had been lying around in my shop for years, waiting for the right subject. As on most of my guitars the fingerboard and bridge are made out of ebony. It's an instrument that sounds very direct and quite loud, in a pleasant way. I've been attempting to release these type instruments from the sound that people tend to expect at first glance.
