Prototyp flattop
 
This guitar was an experiment with extra soundholes in the bridge. It features a spanish neckjoint. The finish is shellac french-polished.
My aim was an acoustic guitar for the electric guitarist. It has 24 frets, an extended cutaway and is constructed to
work best with 0.10 strings and a low action. The top features "flying" braces. The sound is very cembalo like and inspiring.
