Anyone know anything about this guitar? Does it really have a super shallow body?

Thanks.

I know I'd like to have it! But I spent my guitar fund to stay away from having a Charge Card Christmas!

SS bowl would be sweet if you play plugged in and have to stand next to the bass player.

it may be one of the sam ash run from the early nineties. I owned 2 of them and regret selling them both. shallow bowl but they sound huge.

How's the straight acoustic sound, Al?

I've got the '95 1885 12-string shallowbowl and the sound is awesome.
I think unplugged, it has a lot more top end chime and is perfect in a living room size area. Where it lacks is the low bass side, that the deep bowl throws out. Plugged in, you can really shake the walls with it. It carries a tune that is hard to beat IMHO :D

I am assuming that this is the brother to my 1881 ssb 6 string. As I have mentioned in previous posts, the sound is huge for a ssb and sounds fuller than some of the mid bowls I have.

If I didn't already own 3- 12 strings I would try and grab this one.

Go for it. :D

This guitar belongs in the hands of an OFC member. :cool:
