#59

Another one that slipped through, built over 2018 and 2019.  This time a fan braced soundboard (Italian spruce) on a modern chassis.  Indian body, African blackwood armrest.

 

And a fresh bare wood, raw soundclip took with somewhat worn test strings:

 

First elevated neck

My first elevated neck guitar!  While it doesn’t seem to make a tremendous difference in playability (at least for my hands/skill) there are several constructive aspects that make me wish I had started doing it sooner.

Red cedar soundboard, lattice braced, muninga bridge
Indian rosewood body and headplate, mahogany binding
Spanish cedar neck with African blackwood fingerboard, Gotoh premium tuners.

Recording is made with just a shellac seal coat on the soundboard, fresh uncured nitro back and sides, carbon strings (fresh as well thus going out of tune)
