The Mountain Cedar back and sides are, tonally, very much in the mahogany ballpark, with a similar stiffness-to-weight ratio and a very fundamental tone… though we believe we hear a certain musical “chime” in guitars with this back and side wood. It has undeniably beautiful figuring, a very three-dimensional tight flame.
Cosmetics include handsome rope purfling, tortoise binding and simple dot inlays on the fingerboard. The nut is 1 3/4″ and the string spacing at the saddle 2 3/16″.
A distinctive and *gorgeous* sounding Orchestra Model, another clear winner from our friends in Austin TX!
