Default Rossette


I've been spending a lot of time looking at classic guitars as I am doing my research for this nylon crossover. What I've learned is that a classical guitar typically has a smaller soundhole than a similarly sized steel string. What I've found is steel string models, no matter the body size, tend to have same size holes. After experimenting I find my Penelope does sound better with more of an "optimized" hole to fit it's size. Now that I've got that settled I can make the rosettes and they are both are going to be the same size.

I'm going with segmented Koa with black white black purfling. The fretboard will be Ebony so I think it would look good to darken the Koa rosette and a little fire takes care of that.

Thanks for viewing.
