Default 2019 Dion show guitars

Iím taking a brief break from commissions to build my 2019 show guitars. I promised myself I wouldnít be finishing at the final hour this year.

First up is a pretty straight forward guitar, Indian Rosewood and Italian spruce. Still scheming on the second one. Thanks in advance for following along.

Iíve decided to try a something different on the inside pad that supports the soundhole. A little cleanup to do still, but what do you think?
