Stan, you have a real artist working for you! Impressive work. I sensed some jealousy coming from your other guitars ;)

Thanks, Kenneth! You may be right about my other guitars, but I'm going to try to not play favorites too much. I just learned to play the lead break on "Back In the USSR" - I don't think I'll be trying that on my Kinnaird! :D

Finishing the neck...

Thanks.

Looking good. Thanks for trickling out a few photos so I don't have to go cold turkey while the body is at the finishers. ;)

Being starved for pictures while the guitar is getting finished, I thought I would bump the thread with my favorite picture so far.

That is a nice pic Stan! We spent all day today on a wood prospecting trip to central Louisiana. Former AGF sponsor Michael Armand of Aubade Acoustics is a fabulous furniture maker and restorer. I think he’s realized his passion is in that line of woodworking, so he opened his wood chest to us. We got some fabulous stuff from him especially some beautiful mahogany, koa, and sinker cypress. And fretboards...tons of fretboards.

Anyway, just some cool woods that might look good with a redwood top...

Sinker cypress? That sounds pretty cool!

SJ VanSandt 10-05-2018 06:54 AM

Sinker cypress? That would be the tree's knees. ;)

Would that be for a top? More like spruce or cedar, or a hardwood?

Didn't Michael Armand build some pine guitars? Are y'all ready to go that backwoodsy?

nacluth 10-05-2018 07:24 AM

It would be for back and sides but pretty light weight. He did build pine guitars and was willing to just give us some pine he cut, but we didn’t come home with any. While someone may convince us to build a guitar out of an old cabinet, we’re not quite to the point of building out of wall studs.

Hahaha--that brought out a guffaw, Stan. Great line!

Ha! I take it you're not ready to go that far down the local wood wormhole.

You guys should do a post about your wood haul - we're interested in seeing what that sinker cypress looks like, and whatever else you care to show off.

nacluth 10-06-2018 08:11 AM

Good idea Stan. I’ll try to get something together on Monday.

nacluth 10-08-2018 01:05 PM

Here you go Stan. Here’s a selection of the woods we picked up. We have two sister sets of Koa, three of the cypress, four of the sapele.

Sinker Cypress:

Curly Wavy Koa:

Quartersawn Sapele (unreal fleck in these):

And some Black Limba that Steve hates but I say is cool.

What do you think?

SJ VanSandt 10-08-2018 01:37 PM

I agree with Steve that the cypress wouldn't go that well with redwood. Neither would the black limba, but I'm intrigued by it anyway.

Don't you dare give Ryan the satisfaction of saying "I told you so"!
