The binding on the body, neck and headstock is African Blackwood;



The bridge, fret board and custom tuner buttons are Macassar Ebony;



And the sound port is made of nothing at all



This is my Josie small jumbo model. It has a 25.5" scale length with 1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" spacing at the saddle. We used Evo gold frets. The orchid inlays on the headstock and 12th fret are done in white mother of pearl and pink fresh water clam.

So how does it sound? Well Roland is coming to pick it up tomorrow. ask him!

Thanks for following along an this build it's been a lot of fun working with The Bard Rocks!
