John Stowell Model

John Stowell is an electric jazz guitarist, but he has a fondness for acoustic guitars as well. He asked me to build him a nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar with as much acoustic quality as possible, but not as susceptible to feedback as a classical guitar with a pickup would be. John requested an arm bevel for right-arm comfort, and a slender neck profile which is closer to his electric guitars.

I based the body shape on my Classical model, but reduced the body depth to 2-1/2" to limit the bass frequencies that feed back most easily. I placed the output jack for the pickup system off center on the bass side, again accommodating John's unusual playing position. Like all my instruments, it has my Adjustable Neck Angle System so John can keep the action low like his electric guitars. Woods include a German spruce top, cocobolo back and sides, and bloodwood binding.
