Distinctive gentian design and wood inlay Morris logo. Black chrome hardware and ebony-colored tuning keys add a premium feel.
The offset nut is essential to Uchida's playing style. By offsetting all strings to the 6th string side, it makes ideal setting for ragtime blues and solo guitar.
High-precision dovetail joint is handcrafted by skilled builders. This is the joint method that Morris has consistently employed and it is the part that has the greatest impact on the sound, and requires the highest level of technical skill.
High quality ebony wood with tight grain is used to achieve high quality in both playability and sound. One point gentian inlay on the 12th fret of fingerboard stands out.
Rosetta & Cutaway
The wood rosette and wood binding are designed for natural feel. The smooth and beautifully curved Venetian cutaway enhances the playability in the high position required of a solo guitar.
