This guitar incorporates many attributes to make it a very special instrument. The Western Red Cedar top gives the guitar a warm voice for a small bodied instrument. The very stunning Brazilian Rosewood Back & Sides were recovered from a house in Brazil where they used this wood for structural beams - WOW! Brazilian rosewood is the creme-de-la-creme of guitar tonewoods and the sound of this set does not disappoint. Accented with the bloodwood body binding and my trademark maple burl endpiece, makes this truly a feast for the eyes. Enjoy!
