The Rufus

The Rufus is available as  a 12 (left) or 14 (right)-frets-to-the-body guitar that shares body dimensions with the Arbour, but has a lower waist . The cutaway gives great upper fret access. It has a 380mm  (15") wide lower bout and is 105mm deep at the end. These dimensions are comparable to a 000 or OM size guitar and as such it makes a great all-rounder.

The guitar below right is made from local English woods: the back and sides are yew, neck walnut, fingerboard laburnum, bridge holly and the soundboard is made from part of a Douglas fir door from 1930.
