This guitar has an armrest on the bass side of the lower bout which keeps the forearm away from the soundboard - preventing possible dampening. The wenge back and sides give a solid foundation to the soundboard so that the energy going into the soundboard is efficiently reflected back as sound.

This guitar had a few problems with cracks in the back and sides. These have been repaired and stabilised as well as re-finished and so I'm offering the guitar for sale at a second hand price.

This guitar has the Radial body shape with the circular lower bout and internally has lattice bracing. The lattice is made entirely with wood and there is no plywood frame as with the Australian type of lattice design. This gives a warmer more 'woody' sound whilst retaining the power of a lattice bracing system. The sides are double-laminated to give solid support to the soundboard and the back is relatively thick and heavily braced to give it a more reflective function than the traditional guitar.
