This is a guitar built by one of the better known and respected "sandwich top" builders working out of Germany, who for the soundboard uses two pieces of cedar on the inside and outside with a middle layer of nomex. The tops are then strutted traditionally with fan bracing. The guitar is very lightweight, quick responding and explosive in sound which is a style of guitar very attractive to many younger players on the guitar scene right now. It also features a semi-raised fingerboard which is intended to provide greater ease to the left hand in the higher positions. Condition is excellent with only very minor signs of playing wear.
