This model has a plaintive,
sweet traditional sound,
and is available in cherry
(as shown), or cherry with a walnut soundboard. Its simplicity, of which I am
very fond, focuses attention on the acoustics.
The current headstock style is
the four-piece head shown on the teardrop in the right-hand column.
