Man I absolutely love that rosette beautiful and the cutaway he does is very attractive congrats on getting that beauty

Looks killer, Dustin--that rosette is something else! WOW!

I told Marc to feel free to try out some new concepts so here are photos of the segmented floating back strip channels in progress. They will be Ebony framed in maple which will coexist nicely with the ebony/maple purfed body bindings. Appears he also binded the soundport with a nice strip of maple and ebony so it pops against the Indian rosewood.

Included are some photos of the binding and bevel channel cutting progress.

Beautiful, Dustin. I have a really good feeling about this one for you. Can't wait to see it under finish! Do you have an updated ETA yet?

No, but I think we are looking at late September or October!

Is that a Chocolate Corn Chex cereal box? Somebody over there is eating well! :)

Marc has made me three guitars now and he always uses Tetley tea or Chex cereal boxes, lol. It's like his signature thing, I love it!

Received these while at B.I.G and forgot to post. Love the dark look this has with the Ebony trim and the maple purflings that make the back strips and sound port pop. Wont be too much longer now, I am extremely excited to play the first chords on this OM

I must say that this looks like it will be a good one. Finally you might have a Beneteau that fits your specs perfectly! Top quality IRW can sound as good as any RW so I think you are on the right track there. Looking forward to hearing how this sounds in your hands!

Dustin,
Count me as a huge fan of Sitka over EIR. I’m looking forward to seeing this one come together…
…and even more to hearing you play it once she’s finished.

Thanks fellas, Marc did have Honduran, Brazilian, ABW and Cocobolo as alternatives but Sitka/Indian has been the combo on many recordings that I've fallen in love with in the modern guitar world. If I want the choir of angels from denser rosewood I can always reach for others. I love a good, creamy Italian top but Sitka when done right is absolutely king. Marc gets some nice sweetness and power out of his sitka guitars.

Hey Dustin, so pleased to see this coming together! As you say.....not much longer now. Will continue to look in at this thread to see how things are finishing off. Good luck!

Looks like it’s going to be a stellar instrument!

Never played an "okay" guitar from Marc, they are all lovely!
