The Annunziata is an 0 sized, 14 fret, very lightly X braced guitar. I was looking at late 1920s and 30's Martins when I came up with the design for this guitar. I was amazed with how lightly those guitars were braced and it didn't seem that contemporary builders were building like that. Also, I wanted to hear what kind of results I could get X bracing a guitar, using hide glue and a thin varnish finish. I've been very happy with the results. They are great little guitars, 13 1/2" in the lower bout, with a 24 7/8" scale, lots of volume and bass, great open tone.
