This Raffles AB CSB SX is an absolutely striking Small Jumbo guitar from Maestro’s Private Collection.
Upon viewing the guitar the huge and ornate Abalone fretboard inlay is the first thing to catch the eye, which certainly sets the tone for the other details and intricacies the guitar has to offer.
The Private Collection means premium tonewoods from Maestro’s reserved collection and only a few pieces made seasonally, with extra attention to detail and meticulous design work utilising Ho Zen Yong’s Advanced Hybrid Bracing and Rigid Rim Technology.
This particular guitar is constructed with a Solid Swiss Spruce top and has Solid Australian Blackwood back and sides, matching wonderfully with the guitars size and gifting it with a well balanced and very present tone.
In addition to the stunning inlay work the guitar also features Abalone in the binding and rosette, tying together the aesthetic of the whole guitar.
Other key features include the Florentine cutaway, soundport and beveled armrest, giving the guitar the distinctive Maestro feel and look.
The guitar comes with a custom Maestro hardcase.
