OHIO: 700 C/6 (Jumbo) Maple/Tortoise Binding
This was a very special project that, once again, represented a challenge to me to build a guitar with a huge voice, effortless action, and tasteful detailing. I settled on a choice close-grained spruce top, AAAAA curly maple sides and back, and binding of tortoise celluloid trimmed with a white stripe.
As always, the Rickenbacker tradition of "checkerboard" purfling is adhered to. Hardware is top-shelf Schaller, gold-plated.
