Measuring 15″ across the lower bout, this guitar is the largest guitar I’ve built to date, and it sounds even bigger than it is. It features a narrower nut (1-11/16″) and correspondingly narrower string spacing at the saddle (2-1/8″). I finished it with a French polish/varnish/French polish sandwich, and the cherry looks incredible. The Adirondack spruce and cherry for this instrument came from Old Standard in Callaway County, Missouri.
