Notes on Construction

This perfectly balanced guitar produces a surprisingly loud Sound from it’s little   Parlour body, and crispy-clean tone all the way up the neck. This instrument is sure to please and hard to put down. The slightly shorter scale makes this a dream for your fingers and allows dramatically delicate top thickness and bracing, which is the magic recipe for what can be described as near-perfect tone.

 

Serial #18, Built from February 2022 and completed in late May, 2022.
