Hey, anyone missed me?
I'm still kicking, just been too busy to participate as I used to...
Anyway I wanted to show a smaller guitar I just tried in the rough. It is supposed to be a hommage to Torres' first epoch guitars. Not a plan-copy, but sort of of an average of what he was doing in the 1860's.
The top is 5(!) piece Carpathian spruce I made from splitting an old construction beam. Pretty cheap looking but with nice structural qualities.
Back is eggplant color bois de rose (a variety of Madagascar rw), bookmatched Rio fb, old dense khaya neck, Madagascar bridge, boxwood binding (not yet done on the back)
What I really like about it is that it doesn't have a small guitar, boxy sound. Recording made when it was just 2h old.
