The EuphoricMojo is a Grand Auditorium size guitar with a 16" lower bout dimension and a big voice. This body size is great for a multitude of player styles. It has that nice open low end, with a balance on note clarity and separation. Tonally, it is warm with a lively response, excellent volume and complex projection. A wide range of playing styles from strumming to intimate finger touch makes this a very versatile instrument.
The EuphoricMojo JM is the center located sound hole and may appeal to fingerstyle traditionalists, including those who may use thumb/finger pics.
The EuphoricMojo UM is the offset sound hole. This may appeal to players that want projection shifted towards the ears in the playing position.
I favor a "MICRO-multi-scale" guitar, with spreads of 1/4" to 1/2" (option) for a couple reasons. 1). To lessen the player's adjustment. 2). To maintain good tension in alternate tunings for a little "snappier" sound and feel. 3). When returning to standard tunings we won't "overload" the top.
I offer the Florentine cut away on all my models (option). The softer cut away is called the Venetian. I can do this one too, but nothing really says "boutique luthier-built" like the Florentine cut away. It just has a touch of class that I favor.
I use my neck carving jig to carve my neck shafts. With this tool, I can consistently carve to my "Fingerstyle" carve. Its soft medium C with the shoulders relieved slightly. It's a perfect feel for the soloist type of player. The saddle string spacing is 2-1/4" and the nut is 1-25/32"
Over the years I've experimented with different bevels and I've settled in on this one in the pictures, which is a Laskin/Ryan blend. I'll adopt it as a 'Pederson bevel'. This is form and function just knocking off the edge and then disappearing. I offer a cut away bevel too, that you see in the pictures.
Standard rosette is all wood ring with b/w purflings. Upgrades would include the abalone rings. I've also done some pretty intricate segmented rosettes and other very decorative rosette ideas.
