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.
