Kostal MDW German/Pernambuco
I don't have a ton to go on at the moment, but what I can tell you is that my spot in the queue is impending and we have already picked out wood. This will be Jason's first Pernambuco guitar to my knowledge. The only guidelines we decided upon in advance was that he was to do whatever he wanted, so I'm excited to see what he comes up with! Here is a tiny preview:

That rosette and the Bashkin style position markers are stunning. I saw it on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.

Congrats! Iím waiting on the latest update on my German/Koa OMC, hopefully it will be finished in the next 8-10 weeks.

Wow! This is going to be amazing.

That rosette is UNREAL! As if you were staring at a beautiful stained glass window.

I try to follow most of these threads in the shadows, only commenting when something really grabs my interest. This one managed in the first post! This looks fantastic, and that rosette is amazing. Looking forward to the rest now.

Congratulations Matthew

As amazing as the rosette is, the Pernambuco back is even more so! That wood is Outstanding!!!

This will be fun to follow

So you are the lucky soon-to-be owner of that MDW! I've been very intrigued when Jason said on social media he is about to build his first guitar made of that wood.

Now you add a strikingly beautiful rosette and my favorite model (MDW), and I'm keen on following along!

Wow, Matthew--this is going to be epic!

Can't wait to see the final product and hear the results.

Congrats and thanks for sharing!

Looks amazing! Can't wait to see it come together.

Blue is my favorite color and that might be the prettiest rosette I have ever seen!

Erithon 12-16-2020 08:59 AM

What a set of Pernambuco! Has Jason build any other Pernambuco guitars?
Also, that rosette and, especially, the fret markers are fantasmorical. But then, aren't all of Jason's rosettes?
