New for 2008, the Style 1 Don features many of the specifications of its 1934 counterpart. This is our first instrument which uses authentic Nickel Silver (German Silver) as the material for the body. The double cut diamond engraving pattern, ribbed sieve-hole coverplate, and the decorative“DON” engraved handstrap reproduce the look of the originals. The mahogany neck clears 14 frets to the body and features an ivoroid bound ebony fretboard complete with inlaid mother-of-pearl position markers. The slotted headstock is overlaid with engraved pearloid and comes standard with Waverly, three-on-a-plate tuners. This limited edition instrument will be accompanied by an official letter of Authenticity certifying it as one of the one hundred instruments that will be built.
