Austrian Spruce – Indian rosewood (#6)

This is my first build inspired by the work of Robert Bouchet. I finished the construction in January but only got a chance to finish the french polishing this month.
The sound is strong, clear, with good separation and sustain.

Specs:

-Alpine spruce soundboard (Tyrol, Austria, 2006) – superb quality, from Rudolf Fuchs.
-Indian rosewood back, sides and binding
-Brazilian rosewood headplate and bridge
-Spanish cedar neck with rosewood insert
-bold maple and rosewood purfling; bloodwood (among others) rosette and face purfling
-French polished with brown shellac – this stuff is not for the faint-hearted; very hard to get an even color.
