  • The tone is sold and rich and this guitar has great presence.

    In Nigel's own words: The origin of my “standard” soundboard design (SS design) can be traced back to my many years spent in the Sobell workshop, however many aspects – thicknessing and bracing have gradually evolved to suit my tonal and structural preferences and reflect years of careful, honest observation.

    The “standard soundboard” is considerably more curved than a conventional steel-string guitar and the ribs are fitted to meet the back and top perfectly – the plates are not “pulled” to meet the ribs as is common.
