Satinwood (West Indian - fagara flava). This is a stiff and heavy wood highly suitable for guitar bodies which Tobias has good experience of. At the same time it is very attractive particularly after it darkens with time, revealing more the characteristic figuring. All french-polished.
Front: European spruce - of top quality with bearclaw figuring. The intricate rosette features a key motif. Note - the bridge saddle when new, was left long to be cut to length after action height selection - which was done.
Tuners: Rubner tuners - especially made for Tobias with ebony buttons, sideplate engraving and 'T.B.' initials.
