The Provocateur offers exceptional acoustic presence and sparkle in a compact size! The neck is constructed of multiple pieces of quarter sawn maple and is glued into the heavily chambered maple body. The Provocateur can be ordered with or without an f-hole on the face of the body.


The fingerboard is radiused to a comfortable 9.5″ and is carefully fitted with medium-tall frets, highly polished to provide a fast playing response.


The Provocateur comes standard with Nelson Dynamo single-coil pickups. These pickups were carefully designed to provide warmth, hi-fi clarity, and low noise.


To round out the already stunning value, the Provocateur is finished in luxurious satin lacquer. Many colors are available; please inquire with your color request.
