Such a beauty! It was a real pleasure following the build of your Franklin. I recommend to anyone looking at this thread to read that build too, to see Nick's work on a cutaway in German spruce and Cuban Mahogany and for a really detailed and informative thread on how Nick works: https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...d.php?t=522401
Nick, or his wife Jeanne, mentioned that he's made his Dreadnaught in a 14 fret version, which would resemble a 16" wide OM except for the greater depth, but I assume Nick could build a shallower version.
