“Penelope” is built with a two-piece alder body mated to a big old, deep profile neck, the acoustic voice is immediate with great clarity - perfect for a transparent pickup set. The neck is a deep soft V-shaped profile with a slab rosewood ‘board and jumbo 6000 size frets across the 7.25”” radius for a vintage-enhanced playing feel. The all nitro finish is heavily aged three-tone sunburst with worn and tinted lacquer on the rear of the neck for a wonderful, broken in playing feel. Hardware is all Kluson with our usual top-notch, highest quality CTS, Switchcraft and CRL electronic components on a full-sized aluminium shielding plate beneath a mint green aged pickguard.
