The Standard Series was developed from the ground up to give the student musician the same look and tone of a professional quality instrument. It features select Mahogany with a natural high gloss finish. The set-in mahogany neck is hand-set and glued into the body. The Rosewood fretboard has Pearloid dot inlays and the fretboard and bridge binding add a nice touch to the look of this instrument. The 22 fret medium-scale neck allows for easier string bends and is great for beginners. It features 2 B&W pickups and 2 volume & 2 tone controls. It comes standard with a tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece. The Standard Series is perfect for the beginning musician.
