Jedson Guitar Specifications

Hi folks,

I would like to build a table of specifications for the various Jedson guitar models, particularly the acoustic guitars.  I can provide details for the F907, but would love to have specs for the various Dreadnought and 12-string guitars.

Some of the specs I would like to show are:

Construction
     Back and sides material (assume laminated.) Most are  Mahogany or Rosewood.)
     Top material (laminated or solid).  Most appear to be sitka spruce.
     Neck material (most are Mahogany.)
     Fingerboard material (most are E. Indian Rosewood.)
     Logo (inlay, printed, mounted badge etc.)
Details
      Model number printed on label
      Serial number if it exists (inside guitar on neck block in most cases.)
      Overall length
      Depth at neck
      Depth at heel
      Width at upper bout
      Width at waist
      Width at lower bout
       Diameter of sound hole
       Width of fingerboard at 12th fret
       Width of fingerboard at nut
       Type of tuners (open or closed)

And anything else you think is unique and you want to share.

Thanks,

Mark

One piece back.
Bell shaped truss rod cover with "gold" plated edges, no inscription.
Black body "bindings", which might even be paint.
Saddle and nut look like white plastic.
Very close resemblance to a Martin D15.

Sorry- previous comment on model 9000 should read "Very close resemblance to 1960s Martin D 18"
