New. Made in Helena, Montana by Tom Sheehy, who is known for his innovative building style. 16" scale. 1 5/16" width at nut.
Back and sides made of Pacific Madrone (madrona). One-piece redwood top. Maple neck. Flamed maple back bindings. Beautiful wood pickguard. Top is not bound, but overhangs the sides, like a violin edge with multiple purfling lines like a violin would have inside the top edge. Very cleverly made parts: handmade bridge, pickguard, tailpiece, etc. Madrona heelcap and peghead overlay with stylish inlay.
This is a uniquely designed and handbuilt instrument. Tonebar construction with two soundports in the top.
