ELM is almost extinct due to the Dutch Elm Disease which was accidentally introduced into America and Europe. It has devastated native populations of elms that did not have resistance to the disease. We’ve found a slab of Elm in a second hand boutique and immediately decided to carved out a guitar from that very unique piece of wood.
We’re not likely to find another piece of burr elm and this guitar would probably remain a one-off project. Elm is a very musical wood offering a very nice balance of brightness and warmth.
One of the most common scale lengths is the 25-1/2″ guitar scale, made popular by Stratocasters®, Telecasters® and found on a wide variety of instruments. The 25-1/2″ produces a rich, strong, bell-like tone, and defined low-end.
25-1/2″ = 648mm
The slower transference of acoustic energy from the non-glued neck yields a little more pop and attack from the string—in essence, it decouples the strings from the body and neck. The snap and pop of the bolt-on guitar neck emphasizes note definition. It adds a sharpness and firmness that contribute to a cutting tone, often called “twang”
