Stylish F-holes adorn the top to further the projection abilities of this already fantastic model. The spider bridge with ebony-capped maple base provides a seamless connection between strings and body, for perfect intonation and string action.
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which provides a sturdy and responsive playing support. Married to the neck is a beautiful rosewood fingerboard, which is shaped to a carefully crafted 12" radius - perfect for performing slide, string bends, and chord transitions with ease. With 19 frets at your disposal, and white dot position inlays to guide your way, you have everything you need to execute your technique in style.
