Beautiful and sweet tones with warm and expressive mids, long sustain without feedback and  classic sound of two humbuckers. Blues legends have made this guitar famous but is widely used in all types of music, especially rock and jazz.  Definitely one of the most recognizable and most beautiful guitar designs in history. Maple top and central block adds clarity and presence to mahogany back, sides and neck which makes this guitar a perfect combination of two worlds. Hand carved top and back are glued directly to the central block which improves sustain and vibration transfer from top to central block and back side.

Sound sample : neck / middle / bridge
