The top is bordered by a wooden multi-purfling strip which continues around the neck and headstock and a flamed maple binding. The round soundhole has a pau ferro and abalone rosette and a clear pickguard. The 25⅝" scale Comfort Grip (thin C shape) African mahogany and pau ferro neck has a satin finish and a 20-fret ebony fingerboard. Components include a compensated unbleached oil-impregnated bone saddle in an ebony bridge with ebony bridge pins with abalone dots, an oil-impregnated bone nut, and chrome Gotoh tuning machines.
