Mesquite Classical Guitar

The back and sides of this guitar were highly-flamed Monterrey Cypress, the soundboard was master-quality Englemann Spruce, the neck and peghead were graphite-reinforced Cedro de Cuba, the fretboard was Ebony, and the bridge was Rosewood. The peghead had a topless Gypsy dancer design inlaid in Mother-of-Pearl, Abalone and Shell; and the rosette and bridge tie-block were bound with Abalone. The guitar used planetary-gear banjo tuners instead of traditional wooden cello pegs, but had the traditional transparent-plastic "tapping plates" on the soundboard.
