The CB "Single-Ought" Guitar

The "Single-Ought" guitar is Chris' interpretation of the classic "Concert" (0-Size) guitars of the 1930s. Although considered a "Small" instrument, the CB Single-Ought has a voice that belies its small size, thanks to Chris' Forward-Shifted, Hand-Scalloped X-Bracing pattern, which utilizes a single tone bar in the lower bout. We think you will agree that this small-bodied guitar gives up very little to its larger-bodied siblings, possesses the sweetness of tone that these Concert-sized instruments were known for, and has the power to cut through a microphone or an acoustic jam session. 

Dimensions of the CB Single-Ought are as follows (compare to our other Body Sizes here):

Body Length: 18-1/4"
Body Depth @ End Pin: 4-1/4"
Body Depth @ Neck: 3-1/2"
