The customer wanted a patriotic guitar, showing as many of our country's flags as possible. This is a 00 guitar. It has Waterfll Bubinga (often called African Rosewood) back and sides; the top is Cedar...this combination gives this guitar a very nice bright sound. The bevel armrest and bindings are quilted Maple with red purflings arount the top, neck and headstock. The binding around the neck and headstock, tuning knobs and rosette are Tulipwood as well as the neck (with a Maple strip) giving it a candy strip appearance. The large armrest makes the guitar an extremely comfortable guitar to play.
