I appreciate it! Thanks for checking it outspanishguitarmusic wrote:Wow, very beautiful guitar and wonderful pictures! Thank you for sharing your expertise with us by sharing these pictures of this so beautiful classical guitar! Thank you.
Thanks powderedtoastmanpowderedtoastman wrote:That looks wonderful, I really like the blonde color on that maple. I'd probably slightly prefer spruce on top for looks but I'm definitely curious how this sounds anyway. What's the finish on the body? It looks a bit on the glossy side for French polish, but I guess it's not out of the question.
Thanks Doug!Doug Ingram wrote:Looks great, Jeremy! I appreciate not only your attention to detail but how the various choices of what you do with each detail all work together. That is something that too many makers don't do, especially when they are not strictly adhering to the "classic" guitar look.
As you obviously are willing to try new things, I think that you should try and source some good Eastern White Cedar. You are right in the centre of its range, there must be someone who can supply it for you. I've used it on several guitars and it has a lot to offer. In particular, it is a nice choice for light coloured body woods like maple as it has very much the look of Spruce, colour wise.

Thanks Brian!Brian McCombs wrote:New shop looks like the old shop....far too neat.
Nice looking build....and, far too neat as well.
sorry Steve...I'll try to get some more detail oriented shots next time...Steve Ganz wrote:Jeremy. Those pictures are a good start. Do you have any close-ups?
Thanks mqbernardo!mqbernardo wrote:Jeremy,
I always get a kick out of your designs and this one is no exception. It´d never cross my mind to make a straight (not following the curve of the soundhole) fingerboard ending but i really like that look.
Regarding the maple color, have you ever tried darkening it with UV exposure?
Thanks Jason!Jason Wolverton wrote:Beautiful work.
Interesting top bracing... Is that inspired by Stonehenge, or some drawings you saw in an ancient book of spells? Dig it!
I pull out the good stuff while I mill white cedar for my canoe work. I've got some stuff right now, its not wide, only about 2 3/4" but all slip cut. Want to try some?Jeremy Clark wrote:
It's funny you bringing up eastern white cedar...I just saw a couple boards of it at a lumber mill a little while back and thought it looked like something to look into. I'm glad to hear it worked out...I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open.
