Default Jaffrey #26 - Malaysian Blackwood

Hi,

I've got a custom guitar coming in a month or two from luthier Kent Jaffrey out of the DC area. Thought I'd throw some pictures up for fun.

Bearclaw Sitka, Malaysian Blackwood with a slight wedge (1/2").

Looks nice. Thanks for the pics. Couldn't find anything on Mr Jaffrey when I googled except some images from an AGF gathering friends like Boone and Ericsong attended. Any background info on this talented and local luthier?

Jaffrey Guitars is on Facebook, and also has a Picasaweb page. You could contact him via one of those two routes.

Here is a shot that shows the wedge. It's 1/2" difference from bass to treble side. I didn't want it to be visually noticeable. Most wedges are 1" or more, which tend to be much more noticeable.

Yeah, possibly my favorite feature so far. A very unique rosette. I don't think I've ever seen that mosaic type design from anyone else.
