Notes on Construction
This small-medium size guitar has a nice, clear, and balanced tonal response all the way up the neck with good volume and projection. The back is just as lively as the top, adding beautiful overtones and lively notes that resonate well with the soundboard. #20 is hard to put down and easy to play as it doesn’t stress the finger muscles much due to it’s 24.9” scale length.
Nice and fun to play, it lends itself very well to solo fingerstyle playing and singer-songwriter musicians.
Serial #20, Built from September 4th, 2022 and completed on September 17th, 2022.
