It has a Spruce sound board on Rosewood back and sides. The body is bound in natural wood, with a Boxwood or Maple line and has black/white/black purfling on the front and the back . The soundhole rosette is Abalone with black/white/black concentric rings.

The Cedar or Mahogany neck has an Ebony fingerboard with 20 wide oval frets and is bound with Ebony, the scale length being 25" .There are mother-of-pearl dot markers both on the face and sides of the neck. The head stock has an ornamental hardwood facing, with the Northworthy logo in Abalone, and is scarfe jointed to the neck for extra strength. The fingerboard nut is Bone, and the tuning machines are high quality enclosed types, Gold plated.

The bridge is Rosewood, has a compensated Bone saddle and Brass bridge pins, and is machined ready to accept a standard under saddle Piezo transducer.

The instrument is finished in a highly flexible polyurethane lacquer which is kept as thin as is practically possible, (a gloss finish is available as a no cost option). A variety of cases are available, and prices can be made available on request.

Please note that due to the uncertainty of materials supply and cost, it may be necessary to alter some cosmetic items. It is also our policy to continually develop our instruments, and to use the best materials available at the time, so variations in specification do occur, though any significant changes are discussed with our customers prior to building.
