Fianlly finished #5.
Koa back and sides, sitka spruce light bearclaw top, rosewood fretboard, headplate & bridge, bloodwood binding with maple purfling, bone nut, tusq saddle gotoh tuners, nitro finish.











Goes away monday.
I hate giving up my guitars.
This is the last of my free builds, this one being the fourth that I have built for cost of materials for various friends.
Now I'm gonna build some to keep.
Starting with this sycamore OM.

Very nice! How does she sound? I love the heastock inlay, and the purfling strip in the side worked out great!

Barry,

Great guitar! Love the bloodwood.

Doesn't that sycamore make you dizzy? Could be a discussion on how to cope with buzy or boring figure in wood. Keep the rest simple as possible or go for a total extatic appeal?

Congrats on the new one Barry! Looks nice. I am at the same point as you. Five done with some kept, others given away or sold for cost of materials. I have a couple more I'm working on, one of which will go for material cost only and the other given away.

Enjoy the build on the one you get to keep!

Nice job Barry. The next one is going to be a beaut too!
What are you doing on the sycamore for trim?

Cocobolo trim for the sycamore, undecided about the fret board and bridge.
Not quite as bright sounding as the mahogany OM but still very sweet and suprisingly loud.
Thanks for the comments.

Hi Barry. What color stain did you use on the neck of the Koa guitar?
Thanks

Very nice Barry!!! I love the look of Koa.

I just hav4e to comment that I love the look of Sycamore. Maybe I'm biased as we had a huge Sycamore tree in our yard growing up that was planted by my great grandmother. And if that's not enough, the week I was born my dad set out another Sycamore tree in the yard opposite the large Sycamore planted by my great grandmother. About 10 years ago lightening struck the large Sycamore and killed it and it has since been cut down. I would sure love to have a stack of back/sides out of that old tree (4 1/2 ft diameter) but I don't. One day I would like to build some 00 or 000 sized guitars using sycamore.

Oh, I meant to say that a dark wood binding would look good on the sycamore.....even EIR would look nice.
