The soundboard was made from an AAA set of German Spruce, 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 Wild Olive.  The 660mm-scale-length fretboard is Ebony and the bindings are Curly Maple; the bridge is Macassar Ebony. The neck, heel & head block are Walnut; the neck profile is thin and flat for fast fingering.  The peghead faceplate is Malaysian Blackwood, and is inlaid by Craig Lavin Custom Inlays with my trademark “Split-Skirt Sexy Modern Maui Girl” design.

The guitar is fitted with Keith Robson brass tuning machines with Snakewood 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 (#20) 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
$8,125.00, which includes a Hiscox deluxe hard-shell case.
