Model Master C.11 Spruce/Mahogany Retro

This guitar is build according the specific requirements of wide-world known dobro player Luboš Novotný. A unique specialty is the use of a spruce sitka and mahogany, to achieve a pleasant “mahogany” sound with clear heights. The top is tinted to the shade of the mahogany and also thanks to the “retro” design of the metal parts a compact appearance is achieved.
