Steel String Guitar

Here is a steel string guitar with a Master Grade Adirondack Red spruce soundboard and highly figured cocobolo rosewood back and sides. Cocobolo is also used for the sound hole ring and peghead face. The14 fret, one-piece neck is made of Honduran mahogany. The fretboard and bridge are ebony. The body is bound with curly koa and red and green purfling lines. Truss rod adjustment is through the sound hole. The tuning machines are by Waverly.
The port next to the heel serves to open up the sound. Its effects are noticable not only to the player but also to anybody listening to the instrument.
This guitar has a very clear voice with a full spectrum of overtones. It is very responsive to a light touch, yet can be played quite forcefully without being overpowered. It has strong basses due to the cocobolo, yet there is great balance from string to string and all the way up the neck.

Dimensions: Body width: 15 3/8"
Body depth: 4 3/16"
Neck width at nut: : 1 3/4"
Neck width at 14th fret: 2 1/4"
