Guitars nearing completion (April 2022)
Spruce top Sanfeliu with a raised fingerboard on the treble. The back and sides are very old European walnut and the initial results are great; some construction photos.
I'm very much working with cedar/ Realejo and spruce/Sanfeliu, and scale lengths of 650 &640mm. I've been using woods other than rosewoods including walnut; both European & American black, jarrah, Australian blackwood and some yew, claro walnut and poplar in the wings. They offer interesting aesthetic departures with the subtlety of the walnuts and the excitement of the blackwood; finishing in either French polished shellac or a fine tung oil drawing an added dimension. here's some photos of my latest creations.
