Default **Incoming** Urlacher OM (Bearclaw German Spruce/Guatemalen Rosewood)

Hi AGF,

We're very happy to have yet another build with Rebecca coming to Cedar Rock Studio Guitar Gallery in the next few months. This will be our 3rd guitar of hers to pass through and the recent Redwood/Indian model didn't last long in our inventory. If you have interest in this build, please feel free to reach out. Here's what's coming!

Generally my tonal preference leans towards European spruce with Rosewood. It is a rich combo for fingerstyle and has plenty of dynamic capability for the right hand to suit a variety of tunes. Our previous order with Rebecca was Redwood and Indian rosewood, as a direct comparison to the Cedar/indian build Dustin Furlow had made. As expected, the tone was quite similar, just a bit more headroom. We are very much looking forward to hearing how the spruce sounds with Rebecca's voicing and expect it to be a home run!

For those unfamiliar, Rebecca is a luthier of over 20 years who resides in Bend, Oregon. Somewhat close to Portland. She has access to very fine timbers and works in a way that lets the beauty of the woods speak for themselves. Her attention to detail and inner construction is extremely neat and precise. She attended the last available Ervin Somogyi voicing class and it shows in her balanced, full, rich tone. Her finish is generally very thin Poly Urethane done at Vancouver Guitar Finishing, which has been flawless in the two examples I have seen. Her guitars now come standard with either a Visesnut flight case or Cedar Creek high quality arch top case.

Here's the specs for this build:

-Top: Bearclaw German Spruce
-Back/Sides: Guatemalen Rosewood
-Fingerboard: Madagascan Rosewood
-Binding: Figured Koa
-Arm bevel: Micro, Ryan-style
-Rosette: Eucalyptus, Koa, Rosewood, Ebony
-Soundport

Additional measurements:

Nut width: 1.78"
String Spacing: 2.31"
Body Depth: 4 1/8"
Lower bout width: 15"
Scale length: 25"

Top before cutaway:


Back joint:


A lovely piece of Madagascan we chose for the fingerboard:

Rosette details:


Box closed!


Classy microbevel:


Rebecca is currently carving the neck and will have photos of the head veneer design in the coming weeks! Can't wait to hear how this one sounds. Thanks for following along!

What a great-looking guitar! Love the focus on the woods, and you have a lot of nice wood in it.

Looking forward to more posts.

Can't wait for this, man! That fingerboard and bevel have mine feeling a little like the outshined older sibling

My mom read in her diary when I turned 5 they brought me to Toys R Us to buy a guitar with my birthday money, I told my parents that none of the guitars had the right sound and I didn't want any of them.

Looks great Alan, nice set of rosewood and the rosette has an interesting design with the various wood species. I'll be tracking this when it hits Cedar Rock.

Yeah, I’m going to have to ask Rebecca to retro-fit mine with that micro-bevel...!

Just kidding, of course.

...and mine has a Euro-spruce top (probably German, I can’t remember), so I kinda sorta know what this one might sound like!

This is a going to be great, with the endorsements she is getting from this level of players, that means a lot. That fretboard is going to be fantastic.
