Imbuya Redwood 12-fret

The design is a mixture of new and old features, a "Modern Interpretation" if you like.

It's based around a 12-fret neck join, with the lower bridge position giving the soundboard maximum freedom to move. The cutaway restores the lost fretboard access, and the long scale length encourages maximum energy input.  It is also very well balanced, compact, and a joy to play.

We've been making this style for perhaps ten years and it's destined to become a Classic design. I'm trying to think of a Shakespearean name, someone beautiful and well bred? Is there a Moira in Shakespeare?

Imbuya is sometimes known as Brazilian Walnut, it is similar in properties to most Walnuts, and is a dream to work with. These pieces are unusually well figured, and the Sinker Redwood top keeps the appearance warm and dark, which is much the same as the tone.

We are all very pleased.
