Finished an L-00 as a gift for my dad

Post by Phil »

I've been working on this guitar for a while now, but I'm finally complete. It is a gift for my dad for his and my mom's 40th anniversary. Its not perfect, but it came out playing and sounding very good. Its my best build yet, so I'm happy with it. Its a L-00 model with East Indian rosewood sides, 3 piece rosewood and maple back, Sitka top, rosewood fingerboard, Ebony headstock overlay, and all binding is flamed maple.

Very cool Phil. Your pearl looks good with your top and I'll bet your pops will be blown away! The effort to build a guitar for some one really exposes the depth of relationship!
Congrats.
