My twelfth guitar is finished. This one is from a Larson brothers design called a Stahl Style 6 from the mid 1920's. Plans through GAL. It's not an exact replica but more of an interpretation. I've had it strung up for about a week now and the sound is really beginning to open up.

The details:
Stahl Style 6 inspired
-Pau Ferro (Bolivian Rosewood) back and sides
-Sitka Spruce top
-Mahogany neck
-Spruce bracing (x bracing is a laminate of spruce/BRW/Spruce)
-Spanish cedar linings
-Maple bindings
-Rosette and purfling made from walnut,maple,redheart,yellowheart and some green dyed veneer.
-Ebony fingerboard with maple binding
-Bridge made from Brazilian rosewood
-Brazilian rosewood headplate
-East Indian Rosewood backstrap
-Mother of Pearl inlay
-Grover tuners
-Tru oil finish
