Daisy 061713

This cool little guitar was in the making for a couple of years.

The neck is quarter sawn Wenge with a 24 fret 25 inch scale Wenge fret board.  The oval inlays were designed and hand cut by Rosie.  The peghead is laminated with some nice Burl Maple to match the body woods.  A dual action truss rod and carbon fiber stabilization bars.

The body is a Purple Heart back with a slice of Walnut as a core.  The top is mirror matched Burled Maple.  There is some slight chambering and the overall thickness is around 1.5 inches.  Belly cut and some forearm contouring.  The whole instrument is finished in a hand applied glossy urethane which has been treated to withstand chemicals and abrasions.

The electronics consist of a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup in the neck position and a JB model in the bridge position.  A three way switch to select the pickup configuration and Duncan/Borne designed pots.  The bridge is a ABM high mass roller style bridge that is top loaded and very user friendly.

1 5/8 inches wide at the nut and 2 1/4 inches wide at the 24th fret.  The roller bridge saddles allows for some spacing adjustment.  With the dense woods and heavy brass bridge this guitar weighs in at 8.4 pounds but balances well and plays easy.  The neck profile is a medium C/D shape.  It kind of goes from a C shape in the lower positions and morphs to a D shape in the upper regions.  Very comfortable to play as stated by the players who have tested this guitar.
