This is Micro number one. It has a tenor ukulele sized body and a 18.5 inch scale.
It's tuned a perfect fourth above standard guitar tuning or ADGCEA. (You
probably noticed that the first four strings are the same as an ukulele, except that
G is below middle C.) The neck is attached to the body with a traditional classical
guitar "Spanish Heel" as is the case with all my instruments. I feel this makes a
more positive union between neck and body and enhances sustain. The ebony
fingerboard has a 17 inch radius to facilitate the playing of bar chords. The curly
maple neck is narrow, with a 1.75 inch width at the nut, and is reinforced with a
carbon fiber truss rod, as are all my instruments. Jumbo guitar frets have been
installed to enhance playability. The "R" and position markers at the 1st, 3rd, 5th,
7th, 9th, 12th, 15th and 17th frets are mother of pearl. Side markers are also
provided. The curly maple body is thinner than a typical tenor ukulele with an
thickness at the upper bout of 2 5/16 inches and 2 5/8 inches at the lower bout.
The bone nut and compensated saddle have been radiused to match the
fingerboard and the strings, at the saddle, have a spacing of approximately
13mm. It has light-weight Gotoh Stealth tuners.
Koa body with a Honduran Mahogany neck. As with all my instruments,
the necks on these guitars are joined to the body at the 14th fret and
attached with a traditional "Spanish Heel." The fingerboard has a 12"
radius and is 1 7/8 inches wide at the nut. This guitar is a little thicker
than number one, about the same as a tenor ukulele. Gotoh Stealth
