The Artist Series features an extended fretboard for more playability. This increases the dynamic of the sound as well as range. Each one has a solid black walnut body, an exotic hardwood fretboard, and a quilted maple top. Pick guards may be requested, as well as abalone on the headstock.

This instrument would make a unique addition to any fine collection.
