CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Tech Talk - Novax Guitars “Slimline Jazz”

The Novax “Slimline Jazz” model has an arched, X-braced spruce top, fully “floating” and acoustically voiced for a warm electric tone with minimal feedback, and “F” holes for a traditional look. The body is 16" across the lower bout, it has a “set” neck of vertical-grain mahogany with an ebony fretboard, and the appointments are available in ebony or rosewood. The full-contact bridge has a wedge-type height adjustment to maintain optimal sound transmission. This model can be made as a 6 or 7 string, with a specially voiced Bartolini “soapbar” pickup with passive volume and tone control.

Options include different top woods, appointment woods, pickguard, choices of binding color and material, and electronics.

Arched, solid spruce top, X-braced with “F” holes
