Playing with the devil
In this leftie OM, Macassar Ebony was used for back and sides: quite a challenge to bend! But the resulting tone was rewarding: really bright and loud. Ideal for finger pickers.
Here's a guitar that I recently built for young Miss Abby (see endorsers section). Rosewood back and sides, cocobolo fingerboard, custom mahogany/ MOP rosette, tree of life neck inlay. Believe me, she's being played a lot these days...
One of my first...
From my vault !
My first decent 000... It seems like yesterday, well....almost.
No frills here, just wood...
In this case, no fancy inlays: let the wood shine. Figured walnut back and sides, sitka top, curly koa binding throughout, Gotoh 510 tuners with ebony knobs.
At some point, I was left with smaller pieces of figured walnut and curly maple: not large enough for guitars but...big enough for some tenor-size ukes. Cool little dudes...
