The SS-15 is the newest member of the Sadowsky Archtop family.
The all acoustic brother of the Semi-Hollow, the SS-15 features the same body as the Semi, but is all acoustic with traditional jazz guitar appointments and styling.  The thin body provides a more immediate acoustic response than it's bigger siblings with no compromise to the SS-15's amplified tone.  The 1-3/4" nut width and 14 frets to the body give the SS-15 a familiar comfort to any jazz guitarist.   For the touring guitarist, the SS-15 is a perfect size for overhead airline bins and is more roadworthy that solid wood instruments.

SPECS:
14-3/4" body
1-3/4: body depth
5-Ply Laminate Flame maple contruction
24-3/4" scale length, 14 frets to body, 1-piece mahogany neck
Ebony fingerboard with 1-3/4" nut width
Abalone Cat's Eye inlays
Ebony bridge, pickguard and tailpiece
Sadowsky True-Tone compensated ebony bridge saddles.
Ivoroid binding
Black hardware
Custom wound vintage PAF style pickup with black cover
Price: $3975 w/hardshell case

Boy that is an amazing instrument.  Being a LARGE guitarist the thin hollow body is attractive to me.  Then being I play sitting down most the time the small body would be another advantage.   

Dam I keep saying I won't sell my Modern 5 bass, but seeing that guitar is real tempting. 

Congrat's Roger on another fantastic instrument!

There aren't a lot of instances that provide me the opportunity to say "synergy". But the overall effect of this design is a perfect example. Congratulations Roger. That is stunning!

EDIT: I also consider the mention of understatement as a greatest of complements. Just MHO. I can't stop looking at this photo!

I am fortunate enough to own one of the early production models of the SS-15, the only difference that I'm aware of is that mine has a 1-11/16 nut.  It is a truly fine guitar. Here's mine. Click on it to enlarge it...

Actually, I tried to upload the photo I have on file, which is a large one, and the server rejected it as too large. So go figure...I actually had to email myself my own photo, as my email program gives me the option of reducing the size before sending, then uploading the reduced-sized photo to photobucket, and then linking that here. So, this is what you got!  It does enlarge if you click on it, but not to the size of some of the others. It seems that, for some reason, I no longer have any photo-manipulating software on my computer!

Thanks for the compliment however. I too think it's a fine-looking guitar and I love the color. AllenL's is a little different than mine, but beautiful too.
