These Guitars are available in a wide variety of woods.
My new semi-hollow body was created with professionalism above all else in mind. I designed an original guitar that was fully carved from solid wood, inside and out. The result is a profoundly resonant and responsive instrument that sings with the player, allowing ease of expression and a wide tonal palette.
The Semi-Hollow body electric guitar was built with my carefully developed 15” Archtop guitar as the base design. The tone and sustain dealt out by this guitar is truly astonishing…
The body of the Standard Semi-hollow guitar is made of a gorgeous Silver Maple top and a Mahogany back. Divine! These guitars are available with a “modern”, symmetrical f-hole design as pictured but I also make them with the “classic” f-hole design as well. As with all of my guitars, I never use plywood and always use individual cuts of quality tonewood. This is certainly the choice should you want to move from a generic, playable compromise to a professional instrument.
This Guitar was originally designed for my friend and professional guitar player Mike Moreno and has continued to evolve since.
