Ebony abbreviated fingerboard, Ebony traditional adjustable full contact bridge, triple bound body, neck and headstock, 1 1/8'' nut width, hand made abbreviated pickguard, James tailpiece with "Passernig" engraved logo, 1923 Cremona brown oil varnish finish & French Polish, radiused fingerboard, Golden Age tuners with Ivoroid buttons and "Floral" Abalone peghead design. Bold and prolific tone and power, genuine clarity, outstanding sustain, warm low end along with piercing high end and a sweet midrange that "pops" and drives.
