This lovely guitar is simplicity in an understatement. Solid poplar neck, thing humbucker pickup that I wound in my shop. It's scatter wound which decreases capacitive loss so you get better highs and mid range. Individual notes in cords come though as well. It's a joy to play with a big sound! I actually brought this beauty to the Bahamas and took her sailing. On the way back, I had a longish layover at the Nassau airport and while playing Bahamians would sit next to me and I'd see them moving to my rythm. I took that as a compliment!
