“HTL stands for ‘Homage To Leo.’ As a Luthier, I look at an existing design and think of improvements for increased playing comfort, sustain, durability, and resonance. Like all my guitars, the HTL has a volute at the back of the headstock, an arched headplate, and the smallest possible truss-rod rout, to make this vulnerable area of the guitar as strong as possible.”
