Welcome to the Home of The Dome; a nylon string archtop jazz guitar by luthier Daniel Slaman.
A short definition of The Dome: nylon string tone with an archtop jazz guitar feel.
Many steel string archtop jazz players would like to take a side (or major! ) step to the nylon string guitar, but until now that meant going to a completely different feeling and looking instrument with more features of the classical guitar then of the archtop guitar.
These days are over; The Dome has the feel of the archtop jazz guitar; high bridge, arched top, 14 frets to the body, cutaway, narrower neck compared to classical, 12 inch radius fingerboard… any steel string archtop jazz player immediately feels at home with this instrument. It feels just like your steel string axe………but sounds very differently!
