My first guitar, my Debut

Post by Yanguang Chen » Mon Jul 10, 2017 1:08 pm

Hi friends! have a few photos of my first guitar, my debut. As architect and Urbanplaner, guitar making is only my hobby.

Material: Alpine spruce, anegre, ebony and wood inlay, shellac. This guitar is with theme "chamomile", the small flowers from maple. Scale: 650
