The Hayride is based on the J-185 of the 1950's.
A true "classic beauty" with its voluptuous shape, it is quite pleasing
to the eye, but it doesn't end there.
This classic design, constructed and voiced by Borges, becomes a small orchestra.
A client, after taking delivery of a Hayride, called to say,
"the guitar has rich fat trebles and a piano-like bass".
The Hayride is an amazingly versatile guitar and is built with the
original 24¾" scale length.
