Cedar top, makori laminated back and sides, rope bindings, mahogany neck. Accents of green in the rosette and tailpiece. This guitar has a wonderful old school tone. Loud, responsive and capable of a wide variety of tone.
Besides its beautiful color and grain, one of the nice things about makori for laminated back and sides is it available in old time 1/30″ thick veneer. Almost all veneers today are 1/42″. Thicker veneer allows for three layers instead of four and a little more thickness for level sanding of the exteriors. With 1/42″ veneers one has to be very careful or even compromise fairness.
