Default Wren Build Thread: Adi/Braz Slope

Hi everyone!

I've been keeping my head down and concentrating on working in the shop, but this one feels like it'll be fun, so I guess I'll take the time to document it. It features a set of Brazilian I've had around so long I can't remember when or where I got it from ... and an Adi top that rings like a gong! Here's the specs and a shot of the Braz.

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy days to pop in ... good to be back!

Your build threads never fail to impress, David--and what a set of BRW to start this one out with!

Nice set. Now show us the top.

BTW, because of the Brazilian, does this guitar have to stay in Canada?

David, you have some nice woods to work with! I love seeing your builds. I'll climb on for the ride! This one should be scenic!

Yep, the gent who commissioned this one is in Canada, so no problems with CITES or shipping (thank goodness!)
