The laminate sides of this guitar
are Birdseye maple outer skin
and Maple inner skin. It has a raised binding on the lower bout bass side of the guitar.

most of my guitars have bridge with 12 holes for good break angle and ease of re-stringing.
(see specification for each guitar)


Body Volume:
11.3 litres
This refers to the approximate internal capacity of the soundbox and gives. for comparison, a more accurate size of the different models that I make.
ie if the body cavity were filled with a liquid this is how many litres it would hold.
