"Miss Piggi's Model J"

When popular Nashville session player Andy Reiss decided to have Chris make a custom Model J for him, he decided to pull out all the stops and have it made with premium wide-grained Adirondack "Red" Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood.  Andy also decided that his Model J would be a fitting personal tribute to his faithful companion, Miss Piggi. Dixie Bozung rendered Miss Piggi's portrait on the peghead, capturing Miss Piggi's personality with uncanny accuracy.

Both Andy and Miss Piggi were pleased with the results, and "Miss Piggi's Model J" will soon be heard around the world.
