Stephen's D-30

The Stephen's Extended Cutaway Model D-30 guitar is an exceptional instrument, voiced for balance and responsiveness. Available in two depths, the Spruce-topped Indian Rosewood body has a rich bottom that isn't muddy, a mid-range that won't lose inside voices and clear highs that are strong without being shrill. A nine-piece Maple & Mahogany laminate neck, capped with an Ebony fretboard, may be cut to any number of profiles to fit your specifications. Stephen's unique Extended Cutaway provides incredible access to the fretboard and improved tone and sustain over the instruments' entire range. Sorry, numbers are very limited. Around $3500 to $4500 depending on specifications and pickup systems.
