This customer wanted something in light wood tones and bold, dramatic accents. Quilted maple came to mind and beautiful Santos Rosewood was worked into all the accents.
This is an “Elite” type of build. Enhanced design changes like a mortise and tenon neck connection for better sound conductivity between the neck and the body, a radiused fretboard, “reversed headstock” that was narrower at the top to attend to the string stress caused by the angle the strings made at the back of the nut. The top is a pristine sample on Sitka spruce and all the be beautiful sound and tone came with it.
The “violin” style bracing added to the resonance and un paralleled playability. The vision became reality and he now enjoys playing it, as well as just staring at its beauty!
