Very nicely figured Madagascar Rosewood back & sides - it is almost impossible to fine this quality today
Red Cedar top
Mike's wonderful "virtual 12 fret" double cutaway - (the imaginary line from the upper cutaway meets the neck at the 12th fret. This guitar has 19 frets, a 17th fret body joint, and bridge placement more in the center of the body. Although a standard scale length of 25.4, it brings the neck in closer to the body and therefore it is much easier to play quite like a straing short scale).
To my ears, it also has the rounded, silky tone of a 12 fret guitar as well.
Spalted Maple rosette
Figured Maple body, neck, and headstock bindings
Honduran Mahogany neck
2 large clear pickguards protect the top
Ebony pinless bridge
Beautiful Madagascar rosewood headstock faceplate, and heelcap

This guitar has power and a solid, woody tone, super nice!
Robert Bowlin says, (he played with Bobby Bare, Boxcar Willie, Kathy Mattea, Osborne Brothers, and Bill Monroe) "When I played this Fylde guitar, brand new out of the case, I told the owner, "This is the finest sounding new guitar I've ever played."
