This is a brand new design. I collaborated on this design with my friend Craig Dobbins. Craig is a world class guitarist that has deep roots in the fingerstyle work of Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins. He has published many books on their style of playing the guitar.
We chose Cypress for the back and sides of this instrument. We wanted the feel and lightness of a flamenco guitar, although I lined the inside of the sides with Brazilian rosewood to get extra sound projection from the body. The deep cutaway is very Jerry Reed inspired also.
The soundboard is made of the finest Sitka Spruce available. Craig has chosen the Prismatone pickup by Sam Kennedy to capture that classic sound from Chet and Jerry's recordings.
Price $7500.00 w/case
