Sold! Webber Jumbo Soft Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2007 REDUCED

Sold!  Webber Jumbo Soft Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2007 REDUCED

The Webber Jumbo body is an elegant guitar, combining the upper bout shape of an OM Style guitar with a large, circular lower bout. This tight-waisted guitar is smaller at 16 inches across than most conventional jumbo designs. As it is also slightly shallower, the body fits comfortably under the player’s arm. It delivers a big, well defined bass response with a strong mid range, making this guitar a great choice for Jazz comping or rhythm accompaniment.
Dating to 2007, this Webber Jumbo includes the Soft Cutaway option, which is a bit shorter or ‘softer’ than most traditional Venetian cutaways. In very good condition with very little wear, it is built with a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.
