Default Bespoke build: Gaiero OM Engelmann/Black Walnut

Hello, Folks

We will definitely come back with an interview with Mark shortly.
In the meantime, we would like to share one of the bespoke builds pre-sold to a client last December. The client allowed us to do a build thread and let Mark do a showcase at the Vancouver Guitar Festival. We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his support of Mark and Fine Luthiers.

Spec
Body - OM
Top - Engelmann Spruce
B/S - Black Walnut
Rosette - Gaiero Micro Mosaic Rosette
Backstrip - Rocklite
Wedge - Rocklite
Purfling - Yellow dyed maple
Binding - Rocklite
Neck - Walnut
Heelcap - Rocklite
Headstock front veneer - Katalox bound with Rocklite and Red dyed maple
Headstock back veneer - Rocklite
Fretboard - Katalox bound with Rocklite
Bridge - Katalox
Frets - EVO gold frets
Tuners - Gotoh 510 mini tuners with black buttons
1 3/4" nut and 2 1/4" saddle

Currently Mark only builds OM model but I believe he will build other body styles once he starts his own workshop. Our client was looking for an OM without Cutaway so it was a good start for us~

As Mark only offers Non-endangered species for the tonewood, our client chose to go with this Black Walnut set from Mark's stash.


The BW set with the Gaiero OM mold~


The Engelmann top with these Sitka braces will be the great combination with the B/S.
