Style, tone, resonance and playability all rolled into one. This guitar is recognisably superb. After many experiments and prototypes with differential bracing patterns James has finally come up with one that he is truly proud of and happy with. For a slightly smaller bodied guitar it really does amaze with such a warm tone and superb resonance, every single note and string can be heard individually. Along with a cosier body shape and V to D neck profile this really makes for smooth comfortable playing up & down the neck. The perfect guitar for the recording studio but does also stand out so well on stage.
