12 fret and 14 fret to body in various materials
There are two oval hole models. The most popular is the 14 fret to body - 670mm scale length model. This is the guitar Django Reinhardt preferred after its introduction in 1936. The other oval hole model is 12 frets to the body with a scale length of 640mm. 14 frets to the body gives easy access to the higher frets while the 12 fret to body model (with its shorter scale length) is liked by some rhythm players.
