Special Note: Bill discovered this wood as he looked through a rough timber pile in the heart of Michigan. After taking it back to the shop to plane it down, he found the diamond in the rough he thought he could see in its rough state, shine brighter than imagined!

Sound Description: This guitar has powerful lows and mids. It is very clear with clean trebles, and lots of headroom!

 

 

Brazilian/Cedar Mid-Depth SJ, Short Scale

This Brazilian guitar is reflective of a Thomas Kinkade painting. It has areas with highlights that appeared to glow!

Specs: Brazilian Back/Sides; Cedar Top; Flamed Koa Binding; Brazilian Rosette; Flamed Koa Arm Bevel & SoundPort; Flamed Koa Fingerboard Trim, Headstock Trim, & Charis "C" Logo; ; Cattleya Lily (Wood/Stone) Fingerboard Inlay; Koa/Ebony Head-stock Back; Charis Custom Gold Gotoh 510 Tuners with Koa/Brazilian Buttons; Custom Koa Dots in the Bridge Pins; Flamed Koa w/Ebony Binding Heel Cap; Comes in a Main Stage Custom Fiberglass Flight Case.

Short Scale Length 24.9” (13 frets to body); Nut Width 1 3/4 inch; Saddle Spacing 2 1/4 inch.

Body Depth 3.875 at end block & 3.375 at the heel
(1/2” less than our Standard SJ)

 

 

Special Note: We researched the flowers that are native to where you will find Brazilian trees growing in South America, we chose the Cattleya Lily. It just encompasses the look and feel we were intending for the fingerboard inlay. This inlay is comprised of wood and stone.

Sound Description: It has the characteristic warmth/reverb that is revered in Brazilian Rosewood, combined with the overtones of the Cedar. The shallower depth should keep it from getting overly warm and complex over time. It has good tonal separation, and wonderful sustain.

Flamed Chocolate Heart Mango/Lutz Spruce Mid-Depth, Short Scale SJ

"As a luthier I shouldn't say It, but the tone of this guitar may not matter,.... as it's just going to be such beautiful eye candy.  I know this wood combo will sound great, and it feels good in my hands as I work with it, but you'll have to close your eyes to hear it." -Bill
