Nice. The guitar seems to fit you to a T. Nice job Marcus and Amy. Custom guitars are a team sport.

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! :)
Hi,
I finally got brave and posted myself playing Làgrima...

Thanks Amy for making an effort to play Lágrima, also a favorite of mine! I thought your custom-built guitar not only suits you well but also inspires you to play more and more. Congrats again! :okok:

Thanks for the positive reply! I hope to do a better recording that really captures the sound of this guitar...

Congrats! It would be nice to hear the sound of it.
Hi,
Here it is with me playing Làgrima. My technique and inexpensive recording equipment both do not do justice to this guitar!

Nice playing, beautiful sound! Also it has a clear sound although it's redwood for the top.

No. There is another holder on the back side that you can't see in the photo, and it always has another guitar in it. But you raise a good point! I only put it in there to take the photo so now I will take a closer look at the situation...
My usual guitar-playing room is a bedroom. I use the bed to put my guitar when I'm not playing. It's perfect. In fact, I can fit a couple guitars on there and go back and forth between the two.

Thanks for saying so... I will soon post a remake of the video, an attempt to capture more of the true sound, and hopefully improve my performance.
