Back & Sides:
Brand new Iris MS-00 handmade in Burlington, Vermont. Serial #529. The MS-00 is Iris' newest model, developed on the insistence of Mark Stutman of Folkway, who is an expert in vintage Gibson guitars and for whom it’s named. This mid-thirties style guitar, with its short scale, is a wonderful complement to the line of small bodied Iris. Sitka spruce top/Honduran mahogany back/sides.

White plastic body binding. 4 3/4" deep at end pin. 2 7/32" string spacing at saddle. TKL hardshell case.
