New guitar

A Brazilian Rosewood and Bearclaw Alpine Spruce Damselfly model just left the workshop. The Brazilian was supplied by the customer and fully certified. I have only made one other Brazilian guitar due to the wood’s CITES status so it was lovely to work again with such a precious timber. I think I did it justice as it sounded great; clear, bright and penetrating and yet deep and sustaining with a beautiful harmonic decay. I have used a waterbased lacquer also here which I have been working with over the last year or so.
