Please note: due to changes in regulations and constant design developments, we sometimes need to change details such as binding and inlay materials.
I had more or less simultaneous emails from about three different people, sort of dropping big hints about this. I wanted to do it anyway.
So I did. Nobody gave me any specifications, and there wasn't even a suggestion as to materials, you know what that means don't you? I had fun.
I thought that Megan might struggle with anything full size for a while, so the scale length is even shorter than our usual Tenor, and with a 12-fret neck, the instrument is shorter still. A shallow body seemed important; I think it will be perfect to play sitting down in a big soft sofa.
Back and sides are Figured Myrtle that Moira and I brought back from Oregon. The top is Yellow Cedar that I was sent "by mistake" from Alaska, the neck is Claro Walnut, again from Oregon, laminated with Rosewood, from India. The Ebony fingerboard is from Cameroon. I really must start thinking of the air miles involved in this business, although I've had all this timber for a long long time. I don’t think I'll be buying any more. That's what I tell Moira anyway.
Isn't it sweet?
