    Default 16" Long Neck Concert in Brazilian Mahogany

    I had a request from a returning client to build him a 16" and 14 fret to the body concert, and I liked the idea so much I built a batch of 3 while I was at it. Pictures of his are over in the Luthiers form, and many more on my Facebook page.

    This one in some very nicely 1/4 sawn Brazilian Mahogany that really comes alive when you roll the body around in the light.

    Trim is East Indian Rosewood and the fret board has a 12 - 16 inch compound radius.
