The Old School Dome # 39218 is very similar the first one ever made by request of Pat Metheny.
The guitar features an Ovation pickup from 1979 and a FET pre-amp of 1981 with stacked volume and tone control.
The top of the guitar is made in Lutz spruce; a naturally occurring hybrid, growing among the Sitka and White Spruce in Western North America. It picks up a bit of each wood's character: high stiffness, low density, and consistent white color. The back and sides are flamed maple, Spanish cedar neck with an ebony fingerboard. Handmade tailpiece designed by Slaman Guitars, Waverly 'Sloane' tuners. Antiqued nitro cellulose finish.
