The shape of my Concert Model Guitar is my own design and I feel that it results in an instrument that is very comfortable to hold and produces a balanced sound.  The waist is narrow, which locates the guitar securely on the leg while sitting.  The upper bout is relatively short and this places the bridge a bit deeper into the lower bout, even with a 14-fret neck-to-body join.  Available with rounded (venetian) cutaway.

Upper Bout: 11"
Waist: 9 1/4"
Lower Bout: 15 1/4"
Length of Body: 19 1/4"
Scale Length: 25.4" or 24.9"

Dreadnought Images of Dreadnought

I have slightly modified the outline of the standard Dreadnought to my taste, slightly narrowing the waist and making both the shoulders and lower bout a bit more smoothly rounded out.  I like to employ a symmetrical bracing scheme on the soundboard of my Dreadnought model as I feel this helps to control the lowest frequencies.

Upper Bout: 11 1/2"
Waist: 10 5/8"
Lower Bout: 15 3/4"
Length of Body: 20"
Scale Length: 25.4"

L-Model Images of L-Model

The outline of my L-Model is based on the 1930's style L-00 beloved by blues players and is the smallest guitar I offer.  Sonically, my take on this design emphasizes clear note separation and fat trebles.  The short scale length facilitates string bending.

Upper Bout: 10 1/4"
Waist: 8 3/8"
Lower Bout: 14 3/4"
Length of Body: 19 3/8"
Scale Length: 24.75" (630mm)
