A note from Brian:  Having this guitar built has been a dream of mine fo over a decade.  I am 5’5’’ so the 630 fits my frame just perfectly.  This smaller size gives so much comfort and freedom, especially when reading difficult music.  And the setup specifications still allow this to be played like a full size guitar. Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides was wonderful choice and has truly a unique resonating quality with bell-like natural harmonics and stable sustain.
