Kinkade’s model ‘P’ is a radical non-traditional shape for customers who are looking for real distinctiveness. Jonny’s intention with this highly innovative design was to develop a completely new Body outline which included positioning the Bridge more centrally on the main part of the vibrating Soundboard, to achieve an amazingly balanced tone. Usually the waist is the tightest body curve on a guitar whereas unusually here it is on the upper bout.
This example has a solid Sitka Spruce soundboard, with a rosette inlay of Abalone shell. The back and sides are solid figured Walnut bound in English Holly. The bridge and fingerboard are Ebony and it has an oil finish. Notice the tapered design on the Headstock and Walnut scratchplate reflecting the body shape. The large Florentine cutaway balances the body shape as well as providing uncramped accessibility to the upper frets. It is also available without a cutaway.
The Model 'P' is available in the following options:
