A note from Brian:  I had my young nieces in mind when experimenting with this model, only to find that I now find it indispensable for my own practice, especially with challenging new music. The Hauser-model body makes it large enough for me to get a rich sound, but not so large that it can’t fit into the hands of a child.  The custom setup specifications with carbon extra high tension strings make this guitar behave like full-size. Cedar and Cocobolo on this guitar respond quickly to delicate touch, and offer a wide range of shades and textures.
