The Extended Range
The Extended Range, originally designed by Sam Rizzetta, has a wide range, and a truly deep, warm and majestic sound. For the solo player, or the musician who sings with their instrument, the older model Extended Range was a great instrument. But at 24 lbs (11 kilos), it was not something to take backpacking, and the 24" (61cm) breadth made it a bit of trouble to handle.
In response to pleas for compromise, some years back I shrunk the size somewhat, and dropped the string spacing from 1 1/8" to 1 1/16". The sound is still quite warm and full, and as would be expected with a smaller soundbox, it has a bit more useful punch.
A CF version of the Extended Range will be done in 2020.
Redwood or western red cedar top and back.
Extended Range weighs 20 lbs (9 kilos), is 49” (124.5 cm) wide 21.5" (54.5cm) broad and 4" (11cm) deep. 1 1/16" (27mm) string spacing.
