Each model is available in each grade and with any desired combination of top and back and side materials.
The Standard is our entry-level guitar, but don’t be fooled by its modest name. These guitars feature superb quality in materials and construction; curly maple binding, eight-ply top purfling, delicate three-ply mitered purfling on back and sides, nickel Waverly tuners, multi-colored herringbone rosette and backstripe, abalone headstock logo, and TKL American Vintage Series hard-shell case. Standard grade instruments are available only as custom guitars.
