If you want a smaller body, structurely sound, great player that is also 'pretty' then consider this.
Model Year: 1999
Where Obtained: Martyns Guitars, Lansdale, PA
USA made, Gloss finish, Solid Spruce top, laminated (yes, but who can afford solid) Brazilian rosewood back and sides, four color half herringbone wood purfling, 14 frets to the body, ebony fingerboard and "Tone Shaped" (sort of paisley) bridge, Abalone "Gingko leaf" inlay at 3rd, 7th, 12th and 17th frets
They describe it a slim taper neck yet I find it substantial. 25.5" scale length, 1.75" nut width, Easy fingerpicking guitar. very solidly made.
More bass then you'd expect from a smaller guitar. 4.75" at endpin depth of body.. Great fingerpicking guitar for blues etc. Pronounced voice that is NOT mushy when flat-picked hard! Bracing lets the voice 'sparkle' with nice high end and bass.
Good all around construction and hardware, original bridgepins had rough abalone dot inlays... Tacoma immediatly sent replacements.
