Default Pendennis 00-14 alpine/maple

I recently picked up the guitar Andreas Köpke built for me:

alpine spruce with toner


flame maple with toner, ebony back strip, snakewood heelcap


tortoise binding


output jack separate from strap pin (made from snakewood)


fine-grained spruce


I call the guitar "Arielle". Shell inlay, headstock bound in tortoise. Nut width 46,5 mm.


Schaller GrandTunes with snakewood buttons on ebony veneer. I should have specified a less shiny/blingy finish for the tuners.


EVO frets, 2 mm pearl dots. Scale length is 630 mm.

Obviously, I'm in love with this thing. Sounds terrific.

A beautiful guitar both visually and acoustically. Congratulations!
This crisp tone (knackig) is typical for maple, with beautiful complexity from the alpine spruce.
Enjoy!

WOW! I believe you picked the perfect guitar for your style of playing. Love the Maple clarity in the first two strings. This guitar definitely suits your classical upbringing very well. Solid defined notes. Great playing!

Thanks!
(I love to play „The Boatman“ but I didn’t record it with this guitar. )

Beautiful guitar
That maple neck with the ebony back veneer REALLY looks great. Something about the color scheme on that segment is inspiring.
