I am SO impatient to hear this Constellation #1. This is my new shape called "Small OM". I'll talk more about it, after her first appearance at the Salon International de Guitare de Québec International Guitar Show

I finished this guitar during a 15 days Masterclass, at Michel Pellerin's workshop. I did that to finally start to make my own finish myself, and definitely, this is one of the best experience & decision of my Life as Luthier.

Nut & saddle, are roughly made. The action is higher than the final setting, and the tension is on the strings (but slightly underpitched). It is time, to let this beauty sleep for a couple of days, and to finally set it as best as she deserved!

The amazing François Pelletier / Guitariste-Compositeur will play it live, the last day at the last showcase of the Salon on October, 3rd. It will be a sunday, definitely a funday!

She represent, all the hardwork & precious advices, I've had at Michel Pellerin's Finish Masterclass. Definitely, she's Gold to me!

Professional studio Pictures will follow in a couple of weeks!
