The innovative double-cutaway Studio 24 marks a radical departure from traditional acoustic thinking. It is the only acoustic guitar with full access to 24 frets. It is the only acoustic cutaway with full support under the fingerboard--all the way to the 23rd fret. Support is supplied by the neck and the block under the neck to provide clean, ringing notes that sustain in the upper register. Most cutaways do not supply support to the gingerboard past the neck joint causing the upper register notes to die quicly while the Studio 24 rings clearly. The guitar is built with top grade spruce, highly flamed maple backs and sides, inlaid headstock, inlaid ebony fingerboard and complete grained pearloid binding. The guitar is fitted with deluxe tuning machines.
