Malaysian Blackwood Ultra-Narrow-Neck Classical Guitar

Back and sides of this guitar are made of Malaysian Blackwood. It has a thin and narrow fretboard, almost a steel-string neck. The fretboard is Ebony with a 650 mm scale length and has a constant width of 46 mm from nut to saddle. The result is a guitar which is remarkably fast and easy to play, particularly with barred chords and in open tunings. The soundboard is "bearclaw" German Spruce. The bridge and headplate are Snakewood, and the headplate has inlays of my \"Maui Girl\"™ trademark and \"JAD\" logo. The neck and peghead are Spanish Cedar -- not as thin as a hardwood neck, but thin and flat by classical-guitar standards -- fitted with Blake Robinson Northumbria Sterling Silver tuning machines with Snakewood buttons, and the heel has my signature Abalone heelcap. The inside of the soundboard is signed, dated and numbered (#10) by me.

Dimensions: Standard Classical Guitar: 38\" x 15\" x 4 1/2\"
