Named after the great blues and jazz singer this guitar is just like her voice was, sometimes sweet and delicate and sometimes powerful and rough. In a few words, this is the instrument that can touch anyone's heart.
From blues to rock, from jazz to fusion and much more... This semi-hollow model is one of my most versatile instruments. Unique center block is reduced for less weight and more chamber volume. Hand carved top allows direct connection of a top with back and central block for better vibration transfer. Body is carved from two piece mahogany block. This special type of construction creates a workhorse guitar for everyday gigs and a versatile instrument capable of firing up any audience.

Sound sample : neck / middle / bridge / neck jazz
