Inspired by James D’Aquisto, the JazzCAT features an aged German spruce top. The back and sides are European curly maple with hand carved ebony appointments. The peghead is a bevelled sandwich of purple heart, curly maple and ebony veneers. Pearl "Manzer" Signature. The scale length is 64 cm (25-1/4"). The lower bout is 17" and the sound holes can be f shapes (traditional) or modern as shown on this instrument. The pickguard mounted pickup – the "Jazz Cat" – was designed and made for me by Kent Armstrong. It has that traditional PAF sound with the addition of 12 pole pieces for micro adjustment. The volume and tone controls are hidden under the pickguard and can be easily adjusted with a touch of a fingertip. Finest quality hand carved woods with a custom honey-tangerine burst finish.
