The back and sides of this guitar are made of Special Quality Madagascar Rosewood. The soundboard is Master grade Flamed Sitka Spruce. The fretboard is Madagascar Ebony, slotted to a 650mm scale length, with a 1 3/4" nut width. The guitar has a Madagascar Ebony headplate and bridge, a Mahogany neck and heel, Rosewood bindings with WBW laminate trim, and Abalone dot fret position markers (on the side of the fretboard only). It has two custom headplate inlays by Craig Lavin Handcraft Inlays: one from a design by the customer of his beloved Beagle, and one my proprietary Modern Maui Girl. And it has Keith Robson brass tuning machines with Snakewood buttons.

The guitar uses my proprietary "NO BRACES" soundboard technology, the peghead uses my proprietary Rear String Slot design with the removable headplates magnetically fixed to the peghead, the heel has my signature Abalone heelcap, and the inside of the soundboard is signed, dated and numbered (#23) by me.
