This build used a Series D No 4 Partagas box. Black walnut thru-body neck with Padauk fretboard from Gitty. Book matched Koa veneer on the headstock face. Ya gotta luv those gold skull tuners and volume knobs. Same for the rod piezo under the fixed tail bridge. I made the brass nut the hard way out of 1/4" flat-bar and a file.

Gold sound holes. The small sound hole is a highly polished brass screened grommet (for looks only).

This gitty is a great player with good acoustic qualities and a wide tonal range. I'm keepin' it for myself!
