Edges of the Face and Back are corner rounded for smooth ergonomic feelThis Pineapple Sunday differs from the initial one debuted on the market over 10 years ago or so. The first original version came outfitted with a Koa wood face that was light in color and limited grain features. This was for the sole purpose of being able to highlightthe debossing of a grid to represent the “look” of a real pineapple.Utilizing Engelman spruce for the face of the model pictured, is perfect because spruce is naturally white and the debossing effect can be made out upon first glance. Spruce is also known for being able to produce many acoustic qualities that are superior to other hardwoods.The balance of the rest of the features remain basically the same so I am pleased that the few I have handcrafted have become collector’s items. Fortunately, I am still able to produce a few more based on the quantity of requests.
