Vintage

The first few Vintages were so named not just because of their old time shape but also the styling. They featured slotted headstocks and herringbone purfling and rosettes. Since then they have evolved to be less austere and include more of the exotic timbers with modern appointments. You choose. A 14 fret option is available.

Body Length 500mm (19 3/4”)
Width lower bout 365mm (14 3/8")
Width upper bout 265mm (10 3/8")
Depth 100mm - 90mm (4 1/4" – 3 3/4")

Width lower bout 385mm (15 1/4")
