Maple capped, hand carved top (F-hole delete) with white limba (korina) body.

The Milano model is a long (25.5″) scale, semi-hollow instrument that can cover everything from rock and roots to jazz. The stock configuration has a carved spruce top in the jazz and rockabilly tradition, with a solid center section that allows it to be played at higher volume.
The body is a comfortable 14″ wide and overall thickness is 2″.
Two humbuckers are standard with three pickups available as an option. Standard inlays are your choice of 12th fret, seven piece pearl and abalone “Claw” or pearl dots. Available with a wide variety of custom configurations to satisfy your individual desires.
