2005 M22C Classic (3-Point)
3 pointer with a slightly tinted blond top. It’s West Virginia red spruce with silver maple back. The tuners are Schallers; the buttons replaced with original Handels from a shot set of tuners.
Said Hans “I chose silver maple as a part of my continuing experimentation with the tonal qualities of this instrument’s shape and size. I would use European (sounds fabulous on this body), but the flame on the flatsawn silver is so “period”. I always try to get wider grain W.V. red spruce for my instruments. I have chosen exceptionally wide grain for the 3 pointers, mostly because of the look, but who knows, that may contribute to the overall sound of the instrument.”
