The Model E is based on my Model D body shape but slightly smaller – this O size guitar is a great option if you’d like the powerful sound of a smaller bodied guitar but the warmth of a Dread. This is combined with a 25.4″ scale to introduce a little more tension into the smaller body which can cope with dropped tunings beautifully.
The guitars are featured – The E-SS-SK – a Model E body shape, with a cedar SS soundboard, and the simplified, stripped-down Session King styling. And a “top of the range” Model E-SS cutaway in European spruce and flame jarrah with a stunning dyed maple burl rosette.
