Small guitar for my daughter

Post by Yanguang Chen » Fri Jul 07, 2017 7:54 am

Hi, have a few photos of the finished small guitar made for my daughter. I am an architect and Urbanplaner, guitar building is just my hobby. The small guitar is a gift for my daughter because of birthday.

Material: Alpine spruce, cypress, ebony, Abalone and wood inlay, shellac

Just beautiful; I agree that she'll keep this forever or pass it on to her own children.

My first thought was: this guitar is too beatiful to be played. But I hope your daughter disagrees. How many hours have you spent building the guitar?
Happiness is when what you think what you say and what you do are in harmony.
