Fusion / Jazz Monster guitar. Not a semi hollow, but "planked" Which means that the top and back have graduated bracing in the entire center, like a semi hollow would have, but there is an inch between the planking of the top and the back. You get the best of both worlds CLARITY & feedback resistantance. Double Venetian cutaway semi-hollow body with 2 f-holes Carved spruce top, carved Flamed KOA back & sides and Flamed Koa neck for greater clarity. One of the most incredible custom guitars ever made!!
