Ariel

The smallest guitar in our range, close to a "parlour" guitar in size. With the neck join at the twelfth fret, the bridge is in the centre of the largest part of the soundboard, this is very efficient in terms of converting string vibration into sound, giving a sweet tone with a very strong attack. The slotted head design saves a lot in weight , and the guitars small size enables us to build the body itself lightly, both of which contribute to a surprisingly loud and responsive instrument.

Sapele body, Western Red Cedar top, Honduras Mahogany neck with slotted headstock, Ebony fingerboard and bridge, gold plated Gotoh, side mounted, tuners, Rosewood bindings with black/white purflings on front. Hiscox Liteflite case included.
