Fred - great looking guitar! I also like the pic, in general, with the leaves on the ground. I just checked out your website and FB page. Great pics.

Did someone commission this build? Great to see another Ontario luthier here on the AGF.

A very classy looking baritone. Love the look of the EIR you chose for the build. What are the dimensions of the body?

It is very close to the Martin J/M style and fits in the same case. It is a 16" lower bout 4 5/8" deep at butt with a 1" Manzer style Wedge tilt across the lower bout.

I finally got a chance to hear the guitar in concert and through a PA system so recorded a video. The quality of the sound is what one gets with the stock mic on my Ipod touch that was used to record the clip. I really need to get a better means of recording my guitars.

Check out the video on my youtube channel.
