Don't know much about classicals or Gombeira, but I do know this is shaping up to be a beautiful guitar!

Awesome rosette!

When asked about his bracing, Jeremy said:

In a lot of ways I think this pattern is what I've been working toward since I started playing around with triangles and 60 construction "way back" in 2013. The idea that six equilateral triangles around a vertex is one of the only entirely symmetrical/stable least-effort structural systems in nature was sort of "lightbulb" moment. The result was essentially two linked and self-stabilized hexagons, one under the bridge and one under the lower bout. The distribution of stiffness is very even and I really like how it moves. Really it always comes down to the sound and the community of players around me (who have played a pretty large cross-section of my work) seem to think that these last few have been the best ones yet...


I spy a tornovoz in there as well!

Today's pics. The first one I really didn't understand so I asked Jeremy. He said "all the nails are doing is applying gentle side pressure to the purfling line running around the scoop...sort of like little fingers holding everything in place. Considering there is a big block (to support the scoop) the nails work beautifully".

Second one is the binding going on.

She's coming along. Here's the Gombeira headstock (with wenge inlay):

Time for another update!

Here's the neck getting carved:


the neck 3.21.18 by Tristan Koehler, on Flickr


Here it is after it's been attached. You can see the heel is very flat to give you better ergonomics. You can also see where you can adjust the angle of the neck (not sure exactly how myself yet but I'll learn). I like the way he binds the neck as well and while that's not uncommon on steel strings very few classical makers do this (because of tradition maybe?). Also note he has the purfling wrapped around everything.

Well the woodworking part is almost done and here's the big reveal. The arm rest is permanent and is made of wenge as is the scoop. I think that's the label on the wall not sure why it's not in the guitar lol.


progress! by Tristan Koehler, on Flickr

I had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy during my visit to the Mile End Guitar Coop while picking up my guitar from Joel Michaud. Joel is highly impressed with Jeremy's work (as well as the other luthiers), and mentioned he was absorbing as much as possible related to Jeremy's classical design methodology. The environment was very dynamic with a free sharing of ideas and methods. Jeremy is also one of the founding members of the Coop.
