This guitar was heavily influenced by the very popular Gibson J45. The soundboard is made from 40 year old Sitka spruce that has cured in my shop for 25 years. The back, sides and neck are solid Honduran mahogany. The ebony fretboard has a 24 3/4″ scale and the neck in 1 3/4″ wide at the nut. The body is bound with maple. All of the braces on the top and back were glued with hide glue. The rectangular Brazilian rosewood bridge is consistent with the bridges Gibson used in the 1940s, as is the dark tobacco finish. This guitar is 16″ wide and 4 7/8″ deep.
