Notes: Constructed by Luigi Morelli. The single 0 is an exceptionally easy guitar to play, its size welcomes an afternoon on the sofa with easy reach and comfortable body fit. The trick with these guitars is to get bass out of the small air volume. This is accomplished by careful bracing, top tuning and a few tricks around the air volume and soundhole size. This guitar has fantastic note definition in part thanks to the red spruce top, and well developing bass notes. The addition of a longer 25.34″ scale provides additional power to drive the top and maximizing volume – a consideration with a stiff red spruce top.
