X7 Woody Bubinga Slotted Headstock
Karen was looking for a really unique nylon travel guitar so after many e-mails back and forth we came up with this custom spec. To maintain more tension in the strings and make the smaller body work better we moved the bridge back on the body extending the scale from 24″ to 25.5″. This really had a big impact on the overall punch and presence of the tone. We changed the regular headstock to our hand-carved slotted design and combined that with a custom tie bridge. After looking at various veneer options Karen settled on Bubinga and matched this to an amber finish back and sides. The overall look is very rich and warm. Truly a special X7 build.
