The CB "Special"

The CB Special is Chris' tribute to the "parlor" guitars of the pre-War period.

The CB Special is the perfect guitar for fingerstyle playing and vocal accompaniment. Itl is especially well-suited for lead playing, and its exceptional focus of tone makes it perfectly suited for recording and stage performance over microphones. Its smaller body size also makes it a great choice for women, for male players with smaller hands, or for those who for whatever reason prefer a smaller guitar.

Although the width of the body is slightly smaller than a dreadnought (at 14-3/4" for the CB Special versus 15-5/8" for a dreadnought), the CB Special's extra-deep body means that it gives up very little "air space" to its larger-body cousin. The extra depth of the body provides the volume and power of a larger body, while the slightly smaller body width serves to focus the tone.

The CB Special, aside from being an exceptionally beautiful instrument, is a pint-sized powerhouse whose surprising volume, clarity and focus of tone will satisfy even the most experienced and discerning player.
