This is a copy of the guitar I made for Mark Nelson, an extraordinarily talented musician, teacher and author of many instrumental instruction books.
While this is not a copy of any particular guitar, it calls to mind the wonderful guitars made in Chicago in the 1930's and is especially well suited to any fingerpicking style, including Slack Key and old time flatpicking.
It is essentially a special Size 6, with much different bracing, 12 fret neck, 25" scale, rosewood fingerboard with large pearl inlay and a raised finger rest. "Deluxe" is inlaid into the peghead.
Mark's is made of Flamed Maple, but Honduran Mahogany or Rosewood may be substituted at no extra cost. Adirondack Spruce is standard for the top.
Besides nut width choice, and a pickup if needed, there are no other options available.
