The KGB-ny1 Guitar made for Ken G Barras fingerstyle guitarist.

 Guitar made for fingerstyle playing, comfort while standing, acoustic volume and amplified acoustic tone
Found that if you capo the 12th fret it virtually turns into a 6 string ukulele. Stays in tune right to the 24th fret.

From the players perspective the guitar has a loud full tone even with the slim body. It was tested along side other guitars and was on par with bigger /standard sized body shapes when strummed. Even louder than one factory made classical shaped guitar( the body was twice as deep)
