John is one of the best known luthiers today building vintage style guitars, this one being a 16" mini-jumbo with a 4 ¼" depth at the butt-end. Its woods are fancy Claro walnut and white spruce, with a sexy gentle ice-tea sunburst finish, herringbone binding, abalone rossette, wood (maple?) binding, teardrop (OM) pickguard, a great feeling slim and slightly wider neck shape. Condition is excellent and tone is extremely powerful with an oakey overtone set?lots of presence and clarity. Overall, this is a stunning, great playing and sounding instrument!
