Moderne Romantic
This design incorporates 19th century LeCote style construction features into the larger modern body and scale. Bracing of top and back reflects the lateral bracing systems of those earlier instruments making strong highs and mids with evenness of tone across the range - like a LeCote's bigger brother. Although this instrument seems to use original wooden pegs for tuning they are actually PegHed tuning machines with 16:1 internal gearing - same as modern machines. The figured Koa body wood imparts a tone color similar to the Maple of original instruments.
