More information on the guitar

Taken directly from The Minarik Guitars website :

This is the most technicaly “perfect” single cut-away guitar on the market. The traditional single cut-away guitar is severly lacking in left-side surface area used to grab and articulate low-end frequency response. By incorporating Minarik Guitars Patented”Tone tail” engineering on the bottom of the body, and adding an additional tail on the upper left bout, the frequency problems with the traditional single cut-away guitar have been “corrected”. The cut-away has been sharpened and enhanced to tie in with the two other “points” on the body, giving this guitar that signature “minarik” design style.
