Latest build

Post by jread »

I haven't posted in a while as my day job is wearing me out and keeping me from getting a lot done in the shop. But I was able to complete this commission build for a friend and neighbor. Started late last year and just got the setup done today.

This is my bread-n-butter model. A nice humble, 0 body, with striped purfling and rosewood trim. Ebony FB, bridge, and head plate. African mahogany from my local lumber shop. Bearclaw Adi spruce from Arkady Ellern who always has a nice selection to offer with fair price. Send him and email and he'll send you a spreadsheet with his inventory and prices. ellernguitars@outlook.com

My guitar build, fit, and finishes aren't perfect and never will be but I couldn't be happier with how they feel and sound. I like em just how they are.

Nice, like how you milled your own B/S, helps if the local yards have a good selection of hardwoods.

Here's the other one I made in the fall from the same batch of spruce. Zoom in on that awesome 3D figure! It's a very nice top and sounds pretty great too.

Bearclaw can be very striking. I've used it once the top I picked out in person at LMI back when you could go and do that there.
Yours looks great!

that is nice what is so interesting on making guitars is the natural beauty in each piece of wood. We take a dead tree and teach it to sing
