Gorgeous. I love the trim and binding art on this guitar, very balanced and elegant.

I owned a Taylor GS-7 a couple of years ago that was Cedar/EIR and really appreciated the beautiful lush pairing of these tonewoods and the responsiveness of that guitar. This build is going to be like taking everything good about that guitar tonally and turning the “gain” knob way up. Looking forward to the finish of the build and hopefully hearing it in the near future.

Thank you for the kind word! The client and I are delighted with the appointments. We’re definitely going to work on the sound samples and share with AGFers!

Hi, Folks

It has been a while. The build is going pretty well, and it looks like we’ll see the finished guitar shortly.

The neck fitting process while shaping it.


The subtle grain ebony Heel cap & Backhead veneer look beautiful!


Drew nailed everything the client dreamed! Now it is with the top coats, and he will send us the photos soon.

Cheers

Alan

Hi, Folks

Now the Topcoat is on, and Drew will buff it out shortly! Turned out very well!









Look forward to seeing the finished guitar.

Cheers,

Alan
