This design innovation has extraordinary ergonomic and tonal benefits. It is incredibly comfortable to play, allowing the player’s picking arm to rest close to the torso, and angling the soundboard and fingerboard back slightly to provide easy visual reference to the strings. Meanwhile, the full depth at the lower side of the bout allows for a very robust tone, and the side-taper contributes towards a smooth, even response throughout the tonal spectrum. A tip of the True North hat to Linda Manzer and William Cumpiano.
