Yanguang,

Congratulation for this great work!

Honestly speaking I am not a big fan for highly decorated guitar (as to me sound is the number 1, number 2 and number 3 priority) for not only guitar, but any instrument.

I have seen many people try to follow the same path like you but mostly turn out to be tastelessly done and to some extend, over engineered with no sense of a good aesthetic.

You should be very proud of your work that is really the one and only best I have seen on this forum.

Hi Tom, thank you very much for your so high praise!

My personal opinion, from the Torres start,the evolution of modern guitar, as musical instrument, modern guitar design get more and more simple, monotonous, different guitars of the different guitarmakers fast almost have the same face, if not carefully look at the rosettes or labels, it is difficult to distinguish. If some guitarmakers add some decoration, only to decorate and decorate, some guitars are decorated too much, but the lack of a unified design vocabulary. This requires the guitarmaker for the design of the guitar more effort, can not excuse sound quality as the first to cover up the personalized problem - identity.

As a musical instrument, I do not deny that the sound quality of the consideration as the first, but this is not contradictory with the design, like a beautiful woman still singing the song from the soul, I cannot but love her.

Tom, you are welcome! Best wishes! :D

P.S. Tom, I am glad to show you video of a german guitarist Stefan Öfner from Cologne, he played my first guitar in 2012.

Bravo! How do you top a first build like this? Amazing! Thanks also for the audio/video. The link to the next video shows another guitar just like this one. Is this your 2nd build Mr. Yanguang Chen? The rosette reminds me of some of the intricate pottery designs you find in ancient Chinese vases. Inspiring!
