This is an 18″ wide, 3 1/2″ deep guitar inspired by the classic Gretsch Synchromatic, but with some important differences. The back and soundboard are both carved from solid wood, there are no laminations. Also, the bindings throughout the guitar are made of curly maple. The guitar has a very strong, balanced acoustic tone and includes a Kent Armstrong pickup. The neck is 1 3/4″ wide at the nut and has a 25 1/2″ scale ebony fretboard.
