Laminated back bracing
Carbon fibre reinforced top bracing

Mother of Pearl headstock logo

The finish on this guitar is in keeping with the rustic look that the torrefication process gives the guitar
Bob did not buff it all the way up to high gloss, but it is a slick semi-satin finish, similar to what we find on Lowden guitars
It makes for a great feel and super fast neck
The guitar has, essentially, been pre-maturely aged by the torrefication, and this is reflected in the tone
It is MASSIVE, and sounds like a vintage guitar right out of the box
Dry, I'm telling ya, Dry as a bag of bones!
