Unlike most semi hollow instruments this had hand carved solid wood top and back, not the pressed plywood construction generally used. It is carved in a manner to allow a more resonant response but without the tendency to the uncontrolled feedback of a fully hollow electric guitar.

This example has a Sitka Spruce top and Mahohany back, sides and neck.
The fingerboard and heatplate are ebony, inlayed with Gold Mother of Pearl.
