A fully loaded instrument, ten fully usable strings allow limitless phrasing, both in the guitar and bass ranges (Low C#1 .105" to high A5 .009").
The shape is designed to allow playing the guitar in different positions; standing, sitting, and can be kept like a cello player does with his instrument, with the neck closer to the body to reach all the full range of the fretboard with ergonomic adaptability.
Fanned fretted 29.4" to 22.5", fretless on the high register of the bass strings, headless with Italian made bridges and locknuts, half-scalloped higher frets, yin-yang ebony/maple fretboard and more, keep reading below for more specs.

Stainless steel frets are included in all my instruments, due to the unbeatable performance superiority and lasting unwearable feature of the hard, hi-polished surface: expect to go faster and play cleanly.
