It's the first in the "OCF" series. This concept incorporates typography as an element of form. The body combines an upper case "O" and "C" to create a semi traditional body shape (in this case using the Times New Roman font) while the (literal) "F" hole on the semi-hollow body is made from a lower case "f" in the same font. No two in the series will use the same font making each version a one of a kind. I sometimes make my own guitars just to try out a new product that I find interesting. This one features the Hipshot Trilogy tunable bridge. It allows you to create up to 729 alt tunings on the fly.
