This Raffles AB CSB SX is an absolutely striking Small Jumbo guitar from Maestro’s Private Collection.
Upon viewing the guitar gorgeous, intricate 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 Adirondack Spruce top and has Solid Cocobolo back and sides, which in the jumbo format, makes for a very lively and full sounding guitar, with heaps of shimmering overtones and response throughout the guitars range.
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.
