This beautiful Griffin Series guitar has a 24-fret hard Maple fingerboard with a scale length of 25 inches. The board has a compound radius of 15.5 inches at the tail down to 9.5 inches at the nut. The hollow body design of this guitar makes it incredibly light weighing in at just 5 pounds

The Shape of the neck is what we call the Howie Thin Line. At the nut, the depth is a shallow 0.88 inches and at the 12th fret it is 0.91 inches. It was modeled after the 1960s Gibson ES 330 style neck…shallow all the way up the neck making it very easy on the hand, and great for wrap-around chording. The width at the nut is 1.67 inches and at the tail it is 2.16 inches.

The Seymour Duncan Green Magic Humbuckers on this guitar are very unique. Each pickup played by itself will give you the classic neck and bridge tones expected from a vintage wound humbucker. In the combined position you get a beautiful late 60s blues sound which is the result of the neck pickup having its magnets reversed. This puts the humbuckers out of phase with each other producing a unique clarity usually associated with single coils.
