This a very personal guitar to me. Especially specified for my own personal requirements and I have to say its just amazing.
The idea behind the 13 fret...
12 fret models have unique underlying tonallity and added comfort. The tonality is created from the fact that on a 12 fret model more string passes over the body of the guitar as the bridge is pushed back. This additional string resonance over the body is part of the 12 fret tone which I love.
The comfort of a 12 string is also due to the fact the fretboard is effectively being pushed over the body of the guitar therefore less length of fretboard pretruding out of it so to speak! This makes for a very compact and comfortable feel.
The aspect of the 12 fret that some find hard to cope with is the access to the higher notes.
The 13 fret is a wonderful middle ground. A more compact feel than normal, a little more body resonance yet access to the higher frets is as good as most will ever need or want for.
This specific model is also produced with a 45mm nut. Lakewood produce their guitars with a standard nut width of 46mm which is just a litle too bulky for me and my customers tastes (yes - I do actually listen to my customers too!!).
Finally I have this guitar specced with my favorite tasteful cosmetics. Abalone inlays, tortoiseshell bindings, cedar top with rosewood back and sides.
A total stunner, totally hand made to my personal specs. Hope you love it too!
