|143- "Fruit and Nuts" - Mulberry back and sides, Osage Orange
fingerboard and bridge, Black Walnut neck and trim, Persimmon
pins. Engelmann Spruce top. All North American woods.
Mulberry is a relative of Osage Orange, one of my favorite sounding woods for back and sides. I was eager to hear how it sounds. The first sounds from this guitar were astonishing. A light pluck makes a big sound. I am very pleased with this guitar.

I built this one for myself. It has a wide neck (for my big hands), high frets for easy bar chords, and will support only extra light strings. It is tremendously loud and has a very nice tone. I can build one like it for you, but this one is mine. Come try it out and see if you want one.
