Description

Available in three tensions in full size and medium tension in fractional sizes. Aluminium wound on a multi-strand synthetic core.

To check your instrument size measure the length of the back (LOB) excluding the 'button' which is the thumb shaped extension at the top where the neck is anchored. Old instruments can vary, if more than 1/2" over choose the next size up.
