An acoustic guitar with cutawayHMS Jupiter

This model comes close to the O and OM -standards, but we’re definitely still talking about a small sized guitar. This model is mainly defined by its profile rather than the material choices that actually vary a lot from one individual to another. Other specs are also largely variable - cutaway, scale length, 12th or 14th fret body joint, inlays etc.

Fretboard inlay is unquestionable on this model, in one way or another. The first Jupiter got itself a neat vine inlay across the fretboard all the way up to the head plate - my version of the traditional vines found on 19th century guitars.
