What gives these guitars their singular tone -- so remarkably, room-slayingly loud; so rich, so complex and tasty -- is actually the same thing that makes them straight up the most comfortable guitars you'll ever play.

It all goes back to Al's original napkin sketch of the signature 4G body style: The lower bout was larger, but the bridge was positioned further back, taking maximum vibrational advantage of the larger surface area, while at the same time effectively moving the neck and headstock closer to the player. 

The end result is a guitar that actually feels more comfortable to play than a small-body, but has more sonic projection and complex tonality than an uncomfortably portly axe. It's Al-chemy, dude!
