Blue

This instrument was designed to meet a common need for many players - a multi-function guitar with a hollowbody vibe. With the smaller body size and dual pickup option, the Blue will yield to your style and touch, be it jazz, fusion or the Blues. Available as a full hollowbody, semi-hollowbody and in 2006, Solid Blue. The Solid Blue will continue the legacy of the instrument in a solidbody format. Amongst its features will be a thin, lightweight and highly resonant body with a mortise and tenon joined neck. All of the above are also available with an offset double-cutaway body design.
