double top has back and sides of Indian
rosewood. The outer skin of the soundboard is
Italian spruce with a light "raindrop"
hazelfichte pattern. The inner skin is cedar,
and the core is Nomex honeycomb in the tradition
of Dammann and Wagner.
This guitar's sound is a great
combination of power and finesse, with a
beautiful traditional sonority, and lots of it.
The range of colors is vast; different voices
can be created with just subtle variations of
right-hand position. All the strings are even
across their range, and the first string stands
out, clear and beautiful all the way up to the
additional 20th fret.
