Converted from a guitar w. bell shape body that was languishing—this is much happier as a pseudo-zouk with 3 pairs tuned CGC (octaves on the lower). Fabulous sound and plays like butter; strong sustained & deep response with none of the metallic plinky-ness of some Greek bowl backs. Patterned after a simpler model I made…
Very powerful and responsive ‘zouk’ with 18 fret neck, 22 total. Strong enough for a session w. banjos & accordions. Plays like a dream, easily adjustable action with both truss rod and pivoting neck for gentle playing or aggressive picking. Extra bridge saddles too in case humidity changes affect the camber of top & back….
Unusually powerful guitar body ‘zouk with side sound port for the player’s benefit. Maine AAA aged spruce top w. figured S. American mahogany body & neck, Brazilian ironwood (ipe) fretboard, bridge, tailpiece, and pickguard available (no extra charge). Extremely deep & powerful sound, it is made for GDAD etc. but is even better at FCGC…
