|Norman B15 is a regular inexpensive acoustic guitar. Not more nor less.
But the one I’ve found on Kijiji was claimed to be modified specially for the slide playing.
And my temptation became even stronger when I’ve found that the offer was 3 times less then the money invested into this instrument.
The final kick was the sound. It was so warm and mellow and just great!
Of course I can not compare it with my Norman ST-40
As you can see on the next image the nut and the saddle (not visible) were significantly raised.
“Improvement” I regret I’ve made.
|Well. Here is what had happened to the guitar when I have opened the case after two weeks!
The bridge got cracked!!!
I started to google with the keywords like “Bridge crack”.
The first reason leading to the issue in the acoustic guitars is “installing the under-saddle pickup”!
