As some of you may have noticed, I recently changed my mind about a spectacular set of ziricote.

Ray had a more classic looking set that I really couldn't pass and he kindly accepted to switch gears at the very last minute.

Here's the set that won me over -- build pictures to come soon.

I'm not sure why they don't display on this page as I have no problem opening them in a new tab...but man, that is one gorgeous set of BRW. Looking forward to this thread!

ericcsong 04-19-2012 01:51 PM

looks great! congrats! :)

usb_chord 04-19-2012 02:07 PM

BRW...as in Brazilian Rosewood? If so, that's some serious, investment grade wood you got there!

TimberlineGuy 04-19-2012 03:19 PM

Holy Mother of Wood! That set is spectacular! I'm really looking forward to this thread as Ray is at the top of my list when the time comes. I hope for many frequent updates!

JoeCharter 04-19-2012 03:24 PM

Thanks guys!

Here's a picture of the sides as well.

Ray is having an open-house this Sunday, if anyone is in the Eugene-area.

Joe, I may ask Ray to pull out that set, but I promise I won't get any drool on it. That is the good-stuff!

I have a hankerin' for a BRW-built guitar, but I've been avoiding woods that might cause a problem for me at a border-crossing. I'll just enjoy the thought of *your* guitar being built!

No need to drool, Larry... ;)

If Ray finishes the guitar early, you could spend a few days with it if you'd like. Euro spruce top, fan fret, no cutaway...

That is easily one of the nicest Brazilian RW sets I have ever seen -- quality like that is so very hard to find now. Congratulations!!!

Billy Boy 04-19-2012 08:10 PM

Yes, Ray has some absolutely outstanding sets of BRW! To some, a set such as this or the one I selected may be boring...but, to me, they are simply divine! Congratulations!

Diamondave 04-19-2012 08:55 PM

WOW! That looks the set from a SCGC 1934 D I had.... best there is! Exciting! Cant wait to see this come together!

Larry Pattis 04-19-2012 09:10 PM

Thanks for your words of encouragement, guys.

The biggest departure for me will be the multi-scale. I can't wait to play one and feel the difference for myself.

Unlike my upcoming Olson and Leach (which will both feature too many inlays on the fingerboard), I asked Ray to keep the board clean and the inlay work will mostly go on the body -- custom rosette + custom inlays TBD.

keyshore 04-20-2012 11:07 AM

wow what a set of wood Joe!!

If this one looks this good now, I can only imagine what is will look like on a guitar under finish!

Spectacular!! and all the best for the build.

best,

Keyshore
