For the body & peghead edge-binding, choose from flamed maple or ivoroid with narrow black & white pinstripe.

Fretboards
Bristolian Guitars' fretboards are inlaid by hand with your choice of abalone or mother-of-pearl dot-markers to compliment the peghead & rosette inlay.
As a custom option the design @ fret 12 can be to your specification, for example your initials or other decorative motif of your choice.
The fretboard end-profile can be flat/square, "pinch" or "Hilo-style".

Pickup Options
The Malago can be supplied without a pickup fitted, as you may have a personal preferance in this respect.
However you can choose to have a standard piezo or "K&K Pure Western Mini" pickup installed.
These pickups are mounted internally to the bridgeplate area and provide a rich acoustic tone to pre-amp, amplifier or mixing desk.
Output is via high-quality endpin-style 1/4" jack socket.
