GUITAR CRAFT


 

Wonder

This is my traditional 'jazz box' with a few small but welcome changes. First, the body is somewhat shorter in length than the usual which allows the player easier reach to the strings. The second feature is the MOVABLE floating pickup which gives the player the ability to zero in on that sought after sweet spot . This is the jazz box for the player that needs that sound but were not getting it.
