A little better for reach but without moving the bridge too far forward as you get with a 14 fret join.
Oh and further to the above details it has curved laminated carbon fibre topped "Falcate " bracing and a carbon fibre reinforced bridge.

There is also video on my channel of it's "evil twin" with the same configuration but as a steel string.
cheers
Jeff
