The Bay State Haynes Excelsior model is, in many ways, modeled after the original Gibson Nick Lucas guitars of the late 1920's. The small but deep body makes the guitar a virtual cannon but, at the same time, a pleasure to hold and play. It is the ideal professional's finger picking recording guitar.
