Oregon myrtle has been used for high quality guitars for many years (James Goodall used lots of it with excellent results) but most people don't realize that Oregon myrtle and California bay laurel are essentially the same tree. Myrtle/laurel trees grow to be huge and the wood is heavy, hence the curly figure you see on the top of this one. Thanks to the hardwood top this example has the slightly compressed, lots of reverb tone you often hear in all-koa guitars. The factory-installed Baggs pickup has little fingerwheel tone & volume controls mounted just under the lip of the soundhole on the bass side.
