Made from great quality woods, Red Cedar for the top and laminated Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, the first thing calling your attention is the light weight. That is the kind of instrument that will ring and vibrate. A beautiful and high quality Ebony for fingerboard! As you turn the guitar you remark the neck is reinforced with an ebony strip instead of truss rod. Compacter and lighter it conduct the vibration way better to the body and allow to guitar to fully vibrate from the head to bottom of the body. You really feel it as you strum the first chords.
