    The body style chosen includes the option of a forearm contour at no additional cost. Choose whether you want it or not. Forearm contour not available on T Hollow.

    You can choose a forearm contour on S Hollow and TLS Hollow bodies with matching top and back woods. When the forearm contour is milled, an area of the backing wood is exposed. It creates a diagonal line where the back and front woods meet. Depending on the grain match, it can be quite noticeable. If you are going with a solid finish, then it's not an issue. BUT, if you want a clear finish, we recommend that you forego the forearm contour for a more aesthetically pleasing look.
