By Steve Grimes, this is a full-on hand-carved 17" acoustic arch-top guitar with cutaway and floating pick-up. It has the classic lines of a traditional orchestra jazz arch top, while utilizing modern advances in acoustic arch top voicing and tone engineering. The tonewoods are the finest aged, very highly figured European Silver Spruce and Select Grade German Curly Maple. The guitar is in as-new condition and has a remarkably full, lively response. Other features include a carved ebony and gold tailpiece, fretboard inlays of abalone inlaid into pearl and gold Schaller tuners.
