The 24 inch scale length ensures that strings ring out with maximum sustain and generates a fantastic level of resonance. The 22 medium-jumbo frets are a joy to navigate, with parchment dot position inlays to guide your way. The neck has been treated to a gloss urethane finish to preserve the maple for as long as possible, maintaining a smooth playing feel.
