this was built this summer. Jim Richter and I made this for a friend. An East Indian Rosewood with Red spruce top. Forward shifted braces I did do a drop in saddle. Grover 18 to 1 tuners.

Thanks for the soundbyte, Al.
This guitar, all 1937 specs, was made using fish glue with a red spuce top, East Indian Rosewood and nitro finish. Top was thinned to .105 pre finish, top braces scalloped 5/16", forward shift, red spruce with a smaller maple plate. The popsicle braces were changed to a smaller trapezoid behind the transverse brace to neck block in order to support the fretboard shrinkage.
