The soundboard was made from a set of Redwood with Intense Figure, and, like all guitarmasterworks guitars, it uses my proprietary NO-BRACES design licensed from RainSong Graphite Guitars; RainSong calls the patented design Projection Tuned Layering™.  The back-and-sides are Claro Walnut with Intense Figure.  The 660mm-scale-length fretboard is Mesquite with High Flame, and the bindings are Curly Maple; the bridge is South East Asian Rosewood. The neck, heel & head block are Mahogany.  The peghead faceplate is Quilted Sapele, and is inlaid by Craig Lavin Custom Inlays with my trademark “Split-Skirt Sexy Modern Maui Girl” design.

The guitar is fitted with Waverly Gold Engraved tuning machines with Mother-of-Pearl buttons. The peghead uses my proprietary Rear String Slot design and the heel has my signature Abalone heelcap. The inside of the soundboard is signed, dated and numbered (#21) by me.

The guitar has a very strong and full tone, with exceptionally powerful bass and clarity across the whole range, and is set up with a low action for traditional Spanish classical playing.

Price
$6,875.00, which includes a hard-shell case.
