Fingerboard width at body: 57 mm
Scale length: 670 mm or 650 mm
Body depth: 10.2 cm - 9.2 cm

Materials:

Top: Spruce or Cedar.
A Cedar soundboard, although slightly softer than Spruce, is more stiff in its internal fibre make-up, producing a 'finished' played-in, well balanced sound from new, but will still improve with age.
Soundboards are 'tapped' tuned.
Ladder bracing as per original Selmer's.

Back/Sides: Walnut, Mahogany
or laminated Rosewood, other woods to your specification.
In the search for more ecologically viable tone woods I have found that the combination of European Walnut for the back and sides and Cedar for the soundboard gives that 'aged' Selmer tone.

Neck: Walnut, Maple or Mahogany.
Three piece construction with Duralumin internal strips, or non-adjustable 'Martin type' truss bar. Adjustable truss rods fitted to order

Fingerboard: Ebony or Rosewood.
Flat or compound radius

Bridge: Rosewood or Ebony
