"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...

thanks for your interest and kind post.

It was built by a luthier here in KY very close to me, Will Renshaw.  He's built a couple of acoustic guitars for me..last year i asked if he'd consider building a guitar i've wanted for a very long time, this electric nylon string.  I've always admired the Sadowski electric nylon string so that was the inspiration for this project.

We modified a few things from the Sadowski example and after a lot of research and hard work on Will's part a new guitar was born.  It's very light weight and well balanced when playing it. We went with a Barbera pickup and Bartolini preamp.  I'm very honored Will would take on this challenged and very proud and thankful to have this guitar.  Again that's for your interest!
