Jacobson Nautilus #32 – 13″ scale Custom Concerto

Specs:

Custom 13” scale
Redwood top, custom Concerto voicing with high neck angle
Transverse bracing
Centered asymmetrical oval hole with Makassar ebony and curly maple rosette
1.95″ side depth (deeper than usual body, but not so deep as to lose the clarity of trebles)
Highly figured walnut back
5-piece walnut and curly maple neck w/ carbon fiber reinforcement
Compound radius Makassar ebony fretboard w/ small dot markers on side of fretboard and 12th fret vine leaf
Makassar ebony headstock with custom trumpet vine inlay
1 1/16? nut width, standard compound radius
C shaped neck, slender profle
.080? x .040? frets (“Banjo frets”)
Modern thin varnish finish

There is no plastic binding — the walnut sides, maple and fumed etimoe (black stripes) sides act as binding, and the fretboard feels just like a bound neck (undercut fret tangs, and the fret slots do not extend to the edge)

Jacobson ebony and ziricote bridge, ebony saddle
Jacobson engraved and selectively darkened brass tailpiece with Makassar ebony frame

Rubner tuning machines with gloss brass finish and rosewood buttons, teflon bearings
