Oval No. 22

We played with the neck angle, bridge height and string break angle on these instruments. Here the fingerboard rests directly on the soundboard and the bridge and the break angle are low which results in less down pressure on the top.  But it is plenty to drive the top well and this instrument projects surprisingly well!
