Finish my Meiros #4

Post by Ricardo Meirinhos » Wed Jan 03, 2018 12:26 am

These last days I finished a new classical guitar. Its a Robert Bouchet plan, but with Cypress back and sides. One of the favourite wood from the master luthier José Romanillos. I also love this tonewood, gives a sweet sound to the guitar.

Coments and questions are welcome.

Very nice work. Congratulations!
The rosette is very nice.

What kind of veneer have you got on the heard stock?
