The lower bout is 15,5 inch and the sides are from 2 to 2,5 inch. Scale length is 25,5 inch (as with the standard Dome).
In esthetics it's moving one step closer to the looks of it's steel string cousins; binding on the neck, bound fingerboard and the sunburst top finish.
Binding on the top is simulated; the color is removed from the edge, exposing the yellow color of the Port Orford cedar.
And the Slaman logo in abalone on the headstock, never to be seen on the standard size Dome.
The prototype guitar features a Port Orford Cedar, flamed walnut back and sides, Spanish cedar neck and ebony fingerboard. The neck has a distinct rosewood line where the head joins the neck. The tailpiece and bridge are ebony, RMC piezo pickups.
Hope all is good and you had a nice vacation! I totally love this guitar,the neck is amazing!! I think that is one of your strong points! Which to me makes the guitar. I've always loved Black Walnut wood for it's shear beauty and this is a awesome piece. I would love to see a pictures of any other interesting projects you take on. Once again thanks for dealing with me an you can always use me as a USA reference also, I'd be glad to tell anyone your a master luthier.
