#9 started!

This is my 9th, which is a sister guitar to #7. Again Madagascar rosewood, but the color scheme in the soundboard decoration is inverted, the pwner asked for green and red to be switched for a more striking appearance. The back is of best quality. Absolutely no runout, no growth rotation, quartersawn, glass taptone…incredible. The top is light weight Austrian spruce.

For the rosette, I started by first inlaying the exterior rings. I am currently chiseling out the inner section.

Edit: rosette center inlaid. Here is a mid-way photo.
