Todd is quite a skilled craftsmen. This has a modified sound well no baffle, and a shallower body than his 6 strings. He built it to have less bottom end so that it would sound more like a steel guitar. It has a bottom end just not a boomy one . Everything  about it is elegant. These photos definitely only offer a glimpse of its beauty. I'm going to be studying the Jerry Byrd course which might mean I put into c6 but I suspect that A6 will be ok. The riffles of chatoyance are everywhere and I especially like how he chose curved wood at the bottom that proportionately envelops it in the curved chatoyance.
