Default Pendennis 00-14 alpine/maple

I recently picked up the guitar Andreas Köpke built for me:

alpine spruce with toner


flame maple with toner, ebony back strip, snakewood heelcap


tortoise binding


output jack separate from strap pin (made from snakewood)


fine-grained spruce


I call the guitar "Arielle". Shell inlay, headstock bound in tortoise. Nut width 46,5 mm.


Schaller GrandTunes with snakewood buttons on ebony veneer. I should have specified a less shiny/blingy finish for the tuners.


EVO frets, 2 mm pearl dots. Scale length is 630 mm.

Obviously, I'm in love with this thing. Sounds terrific.

A beautiful guitar both visually and acoustically. Congratulations!
This crisp tone (knackig) is typical for maple, with beautiful complexity from the alpine spruce.
Enjoy!
