SOLID MAHOGANY SOPRANO BODY = CLASSIC TONE
The Soprano Body gives you that traditional Solid Mahogany Midrangy Honk that is typical of the Classic Mahogany Soprano sound that we all love.
20 FRET TENOR NECK = MAXIMUM PLAYING COMFORT AND ROOM TO MOVE
An extended, longer neck gives you more room for your fretwork, yet retains an authentic soprano sound. You have real room to move with the increased finger space in that is available on a 20 fret Tenor Neck.
CHUNKY NECK = COMFORT AND SUPERIOR TONE
I really dig the chunky neck too, I'm of the old school of thought that the fatter the neck the more comfortable your Left hand/arm feels (especially with long gigs)
And a Fatter Neck has more wood mass, is stiffer and stronger and that means every ounce of energy and tone can be wrung out of the Strings. Strings are the quality Italian made Aquila Nylgut
The intonation is fantastic too, I find that you usually get superior intonation on a Tenor neck vis a vis a Soprano Neck.
