I call this guitar the "Fatboy" guitar, simply because it is short and wide. It's a unique guitar, it is my own design but its basic
shape is taken from an old guitar that was made in Chicago in the '40's. I really loved the original old guitar so I decided to design
one of my own around its lines.
The Fatboy has a short scale at 24.25 and the body is a full 16 inches across. I have built them
with many different features, from a standard vintage style to Fatboys with dual soundholes, adjustable neck joints with access panels,
and various bracing schemes.
