SLOPE D 

Some of my favorite guitars are the old (and new) slope shouldered jumbo bodied guitars made by Gibson.  The old Jumbos, the J-50 and others are typical.  These guitars have a shorter scale than Martins (24.75 vs. 25.4) and often are made of mahogany.  They have a wonderful balance and are easy to play.  SO...... I decided to try making one.  This is the first, and not the last.  It will be a regular model from now on.
