Default Sexauer '21

Just today I realized that I hadn't started a new folder in my website for 2021 builds, and so having now done that task, I thought I might as well get with the program here in the AGF as well.

This is a continuation of my Sexauer 2020 (Chapters 1, 2, and 3) thread which can be found HERE. I have been doing this "Blog Thread" in the AGF since 2014, and I believe all of the the chapters are linked backwards and forwards. My intention has been to freely share my insights and methods, and these chapters offer a great deal of information to those who are interested. I am in my 53rd year of lutherie, and I know stuff. IMO, of course.

Here is a repost of the current build, which I just started yesterday. It is worth mentioning, perhaps, that all of my AGF posts are real time, not an idealization of the past. This guitar will be an OM inspired MadRose/German spruce cutaway.In my nomenclature, it is an FT-15-C-JB/2.

Great to see the 2021 continuation. Happy New Year Bruce!

BTW, picture links are showing up as broken. Probably some type of typo.

And you’re right - you may get Bruces best guitar yet - but you won’t know for sure ‘til you get your second!

After it's built, you can go play and compare to yours. But they could be different just because mine is built for fingerstyle and yours for strumming.

All I know is it'll be the best one in my tiny collection!

Rest assured - I will go out of my way to try this one!
More than a few Santa Cruzís, a few Sexauers, a Patterson, a Larrivee, a Cumpiano, and a Klepper!!
