Crafted For Speed, Tone, and Feel
This 2020 Jason Richardson Artist Series 7 string Cutlass guitar features a translucent alder body with a figured burl top in the new Rorschach Red finish that is highlighted with natural 3/16th inch wood binding, gloss finish, and gold hardware. It is a perfectly balanced lightweight double-cutaway body design, allowing unparalleled access to all 24 medium jumbo frets. Additionally, the roasted maple neck is hand-shaped with a shallow neck carve for very fast playability. Hand-selected body and neck woods are sustainably sourced from our network of hardwood suppliers around the world. Alder, burl, and maple are individually chosen and matched for their beautiful appearance and rich tonal qualities.
