Scroll Bass

The design of the Clone 1 guitar perfectly captures the balance of old and new aesthetics. Designed to be a modern interpretation of a jazz archtop guitar the profile suits the needs of both the old souls and the vibrant youths. Among today’s vast musical landscapes, jazz has extremely wide applications, making this the perfect model for anyone with influences from the Roaring Age. Featuring a heavily asymmetric body shape and offset waist, the design of this guitar effectively creates lines that are bold, yet clean. The meticulously crafted tail piece, bridge, and materials carry over the old jazz guitar aesthetic, ultimately blending the new with the old. Subtle woodworking techniques make this instrument a great pleasure to build, and an even greater pleasure to hold and play. Once your fingers begin bebopping along this beauty, you may not be able to put her down.
