Yes, my photo was normal, but on here it got rotated and I don't know why. Maybe a moderator can fix it?
Now fixed. I don't know why it displayed sideways as it was within the forum's size limits. Nevertheless creating a smaller version of the same image file fixed the problem :?

Thanks for doing that! Poor guitar was getting tired hanging out in suspended gravity

I've had this happen to a couple of my pictures on various forums. I think it has something to do with portrait pictures taken on a mobile device.

Beautiful guitar, congrats! :okok:

Now that the technical aspect of posting photos is somewhat understood, can you post more photos, closeups of the soundboard, rosette, B&Ss, headstock etc to share? Better yet, someone with your CG and video skills, as seen in your Vimeo video signature, you can do a piece on the guitar with your fave like Sons de Carrilhoes? Just asking! :)

Wow! That's really sweet of you... The people on this forum are so nice...
I will try to record Sons de Carrilhoes very soon... but until I play it better, I will try re-recording my piece from the Vimeo video. The recording in the video was performed on my terz guitar, which is tuned up a third from standard tuning so I would like to hear it on my Dominelli.

Congratulations on your new and beautiful guitar, Amy!
A sound sample would be nice... :-)
Do you know what kind of bracing it has?

Thanks... I’m working on Son de Carrilhoes and hopefully soon I will be able to record it. All I have is my iPhone but the Zoom iQ7 mic does a pretty good job. I just hope I can play all the way through without crash landing on the fingerboard !

It’s a small body, with fan bracing.

Thank you.
The top has a very nice finishing. No wonder everybody thought it was Redwood, myself included.

Always been a fan of Marcus' work and he seems like a great guy as well. Got to play one of his double tops and it was powerful. Enjoy!

He was so nice to work with and I doubt he needs the promo, but just in case, I will say that if anyone is interested in purchasing a luthier made guitar, Marcus is the one! He explained so many details and always responded quickly every time I had an episode of what I call "custom build OCD." The guitar sounds so beautiful and I don't have any regrets at all about my purchase.

Thanks ! I see you have an awesome Còrdoba. I was seriously considering that guitar because of the 48mm nut. But I really needed a smaller body. I've heard great things about the sound...

Thanks! The Cordoba is very pretty - but it doesn't have that unique flavour like your new guitar does. Love the touch of green in the rosette and other ornamentation.

I had a very talented young man put the Cordoba through it's paces before I bought it - and I thought it sounded really nice. I know I'll never outgrow it! I take a certain comfort from that! :)
