Default Blake Dyson 000 12 Fret Inbound

Earlier this year I found a below the radar luthier who lives just 35 minutes from me and I purchased a Brazilian RW B/S 000 14 fretter that he had just completed…..it’s a hard one to put down once I pick her up to play….here is a thread I posted earlier in the year after I purchased:

During one of my trips to his workshop he had a beautiful set of Claro Walnut in which he was going to start another guitar with….I had to have it and that guitar is now two months from being completed. I was able to pick out all the other wood for the guitar including the top and we designed the rosette together….

Here are the specs and some pics and I’ll post more pics once she is complete and I have played!
