A slight 30" fingerboard radius eases the playing action for the left hand, especially when barring chords, while also making it easier for the right hand to navigate between the strings.

A bass-side sound port enhances the sound (especially the bass and low-mid response) for the player, while having a negligible affect on the projection in front of the instrument.

"I was involved in every step of the build and was updated on a regular basis as he progressed. When finished, the guitar exceeded all my expectations, and I feel privileged to own such an instrument. The sound is extraordinary! It is loud, has a very smooth and balanced tone...it's deep and bold with a pleasant sparkle of clarity on top. The Latin meaning of 'Oria' is golden, and that is exactly what it is."
