Default McKnight LowLander

Hi all,

Excited to share that my first-ever custom build will be commencing shortly! I couldn't possibly ask for a better luthier/company to work with than the McKnights (Tim and Mary). So thorough in communication and extremely generous with their time -- all overlaid with exceptional kindness and patience. Today, they even took me on an amazing virtual tour of their shop, where we explored in detail all the various materials, woods, tools, etc... and then focused on finalizing the particulars/specs for my build. Honestly, felt like I was in the shop with them!

Here are the general specs:
- McKnight LowLander OOO
- 12-fret w/ venetian cutaway
- German Spruce top
- Amazon RW back/sides
- Honduran Mahogany neck
- Ebony bridge, fretboard
- ABW binding
- ABW rosette
- Luckenbooth sound port
- 25.25" scale
- 1 3/4" nut width
- 2 3/16" string spacing
- Gotoh 510 tuners

Looking for nice and rich volume/resonance/overtones in a comfortable smaller-body, and I think I'm going to get that and then some. Very excited to start this journey!

Big thank you to the McKnights!

Photos of the build process will be forthcoming....
Froggy Bottom, Emerald, McKnight
