Default Buendia OM Build

After about a year and a half wait, my number has come up and Im so excited to have Leo Buendia building my dream guitar. During my stretch on Leos list Ive much enjoyed the generous sharing of those who were a little quicker to join the queue. So it is my hope to return the favor for those in waiting or anyone who may find interest Leos work.

-Robert

Top braces, Sitka spruce
Back and sides, Brazilian Rosewood
