Their beach, campfire, or back-of-the-car guitars. Please take a Good Look at the Pictures. Solid close grained Spruce Top, Aged Rosewood sides and back with beautiful grain showing through and an Abolone Dot Inlays.Many people quote these guitars as having mahagany sides and back.. This is completely incorrect, the saides and back are ply and the back of this one has been sanded smooth as has the back of the neck. Whether this was done as the first part of a referb we dont know, but the neck is really smooth and comfy and you don't notice the back whilst playing. I guiess it gives you options to refinish or paint or what ever you feel.
A Mahogany neck with a 25 1/2 Scale length, it has probably a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets, joined to the body at the 14th fret. The Bridge which is almost certainly Rosewood is well. Positioned to provide great tonal stability and intonation.These are 00-sized and that means a 14 1/2 lower bout. It has a 25" scale length and a 1 11/16" nut width and sports a medium, C-shaped neck profile. It handles sort-of like a Gibson LG-2 or B-25 but the body is all-ply in construction and fan-braced rather than x-braced. It's both louder, folkier, and warmer than you'd expect but does have the sort-of sizzly or glassy high end response that you find on most ply guitars. Overall -- it's a great little guitar.
