Bluesmaster-S

My objective with the Bluesmaster-S was to add some air around the notes. I have maintained the familiar Bluesmaster "59 perimeter, while radically altering the construction, utilizing a solid center block with a carved top and back. The semi comes standard with Mahogany back, sides and a carved Eastern Maple top.

*The Dotmaster Limited uses the same construction and design features as the Bluesmaster-S, with a white limba back and sides with Western Maple top and a Mahogany neck. The select bound Rosewood fingerboard features dot inlays.
