Here is a custom Jumbo that was designed by the customer. The woods and the inlay were supplied by the customer. The combination of the dense purpleheart back and sides together with a stiff sitka spruce top made for a loud guitar with strong tone and plenty of sustain. Some of his comments:
"Jim, got the guitar
home and started playing some. The more I started to play the
better things got. Guess not playing acoustic for 6 or 7 months
has something to do with it! The acoustics of your work shop don't
do any justice to the actual tone of the guitar. Sounds like vintage
70's at my place! I'm liking it more everytime i play it. Im sure
it's going to turn into a monster. Thanks again for your patience,
and the speedy completion! Hope you enjoy some of the tunes!"
