Default Simon Fay build for TAMCO UK.

I am delighted to have a build under way by Simon.

It is in Adirondack and Cuban mahogany. More photos soon.

Simon builds a fantastic instrument, and that Cuban is very attractive! Looking forward to this thread.

Aha! I see that you fell for Simon's sneaky little plan of planting that gorgeous set of B&W Ebony under the rims pictured above. LOL

This should be a beautiful build for sure.

Black and white Ebony isn't too shabby either!

Side bending fixture would be my guess.

Love that look... I'm kicking myself for passing up an opportunity to grab a great set of B&W Ebony that looked quite similar to this. This will be a stunning instrument!
