  • Here's a description of this guitar in Bruce's own words: "My ultimate compromise to solve the ongoing discussion re the superiority of the OM over the 000  or the 000 over the OM.  The Kerala in my 13 fret to the body concert sized guitar. The body is longer than the OM and shorter than the 12 fret 000 and the tone is arguably more balanced than either. This particular example is short scale, ie 24.9". It is made from quartersawn Sapele with outrageously intense figure. The sound is in the Mahogany vein with a little more separation and projection than  one might expect due to the wood being quite hard for a Mahogany, not that Sapele actually is one.
  • I have named my 13 fret body guitars "Kerala" as a tip of the hat to Ed Claxton, who first brought my attention to 13 fretter, and at that time called his 13 fretters "Malabar", an older name for the same region of India."
