"The Mission". Pure acoustic, this piece has an old soul as if transported from another age. Hand-cut sound holes and carved headstock, bridge saddle, and tailpiece bring a sense of history long past. Of course, a pickup may be added upon request. Make it yours!
Special notes: The nut, bridge, and bridge saddle are purposefully NOT glued down, but rather held by string tension. This allows for future adjustments if necessary. Should you prefer higher or lower action, you can replace nut and/or bridge rods with those of a larger or smaller diameter. Also, leaving the bridge and saddle “floating” allows for intonation adjustments as needed.
Helpful Tip - if intonation at the 12th fret is sharp, slide the bridge slightly back toward the tailpiece until the note is in tune. Likewise, if the intonation at the 12th fret is flat, slide the bridge slightly forward toward the nut until the note is in tune. When changing strings, do so one at a time in order.in order to maintain bridge and nut positioning. Naturally, you can contact me if you have any questions.
