Moll Express jazz guitar


Though it has an old school/modernist German vibe, this superb high end luthier's jazz guitar comes from Missouri (I think it's one of the states of Northern America). Its slightly experimental shape - based on ageless hollow-body template - combines venerability and sexiness, how can one not love it?

There are also plenty of lovely details on this Moll Express - the ebony stop-tail with moon and stars inlays, the asymmetric bridge, the knobs on the scratchplate (I feel like writing scratchplate today and not pickguard), the wide soundholes, the fingerboard mother-of-pearl inlays, the headstock shape... A guitar I wouldn't abuse!
