Mini Jumbo Prairie State
Just by chance I stopped into Johann Brentrup's garage sale (N. Mpls) the week before last to learn there was a master luthier lingering on the premises. The images here are from his site at: http://brentrup.com/. This beauty is called the Mini Jumbo front with the Prairie State 18" rear, & retails around $3695.
Standard features:22.875” scale
X-bracing or Ladder-X
Red spruce top
Mahogany or white oak back and sides
Ebony fingerboard with dots
CF tone tubes

I can't wait to get my hands on one of these. }:-D-
