This is a Cream Ash Sollophonic solid-bodied resonator guitar with a maple neck. Like all Sollophonic Guitars it has a Continental cone under the cover-plate and a bone top nut with widened string spacing. This guitar has a nice, chunky-ish maple neck with a satin finish and an easy playing profile, with enclosed tuners. Strung with 12-52 strings, it has a rosewood biscuit bridge and a maple saddle, and is set up with an action which is a good mix for both slide and non-slide playing. The combination of this gives this guitar a great, loud, rich acoustic tone, and makes for a very versatile instrument. It has a Soapbar P90 pickup, rated at 9K, wired to controls on a chrome plate near the jack socket and topped with chrome domed knobs. This pickup gives a full, warm electric sound, a classic tone for slide and is mounted under a red tortoise-shell scratch-plate, which compliments the cream finish of the guitar. Finally it has a sieve pattern cover-plate, a chrome tail-piece and two rear sound-ports with a stainless steel grilles.
So to sum up, a solid, cream ash guitar, with sweet playing and feeling maple neck. Soapbar P90 pickup, for classic tone, a mixed versatile action, sieve cover-plate, twin rear sound ports and a red tortoiseshell scratch-plate. Classy sounding, great looking, a classic Sollophonic combo here.
