I wanted to build a dreadnaught, but I didn’t want to build the usual boxy body. So I decided to build a slope-shoulder body like a Gibson. I really like the look and proportion of this style better than the boxier version. I handcrafted this one with an Indian Rosewood body and Sitka spruce top. I used ebony for the bridge, fretboard and headstock overlay. The neck is mahogany and it has a long scale, 25.5″.
