The stylish design of the 40 Series adds panache to the classic tone and feel of East Indian rosewood back and sides, a Sitka spruce scalloped X-braced top, and hand-fit dovetail neck joint. Open geared tuners, antique white binding, polished gloss finish, a tortoise colored pickguard and abalone pearl inlay offer shimmer with exemplary tone. Long scale and a sleek modified low-oval neck with narrow taper mean strumming and picking for hours in comfort and bliss.
