Top and back are from solid, highly figured sycamore, machine carved and hand finished to reduce weight. They are bonded to a CNC machined solid mahogany core. The mahogany core centre section finishes just behind the tailpiece, reducing weight even further and joining the two sound chambers together to give a sweet vintage tone with no loss of sustain. The neck is also from mahogany, fitted with a stainless steel truss rod, and attached to the body using a glued mortise and tenon joint.
