Please note: due to changes in regulations and constant design developments, we sometimes need to change details such as binding and inlay materials.
John has always enjoyed transcribing welsh music to guitar, and he has a plan for some pieces that he thinks will sound just right with a 9 string. We discussed various body style options, taking account of all the years he had playing a wide neck Oberon, but now transferring to the slimmer Alchemist, so this is a bit of a compromise. We decided on an Oberon body with cutaway, but a slim neck, even after adding the extra strings. John is getting on very well with it, but he is one of the unusual breed who likes a high action, and I’d forgotten how to do that.
