After these mock-ups, Chris worked on this guitar pretty slowly due to the Somogyi Workload and Covid Breakout. But it was worth the waiting for sure~
He realized those elements as one fluid design.
So here comes the completed woodworking on this guitar~
First, the Rose and Fretboard extension~





Then the Body





There are many details on the design elements if you go closer~

Then, he simplified the fretboard design~




The head truly completes the design!!



We got the last photos when Chris shaped the Bridge before gluing it to the top.

We delivered the guitar to the client right after the arrival.
Luckily, we got some photos here.

OK--the guitar is beautiful, the woodworking is impeccable, the craftsmanship is top shelf all the way. This young man is amazingly talented. But, I would never buy a guitar with a headstock that looked like that. Somehow, to my eye, it throws the guitar's symmetry out of whack. Maybe it's just a bit too far from tradition for my tastes.

Utterly impeccable. It's hard to overstate the mastery that has gone into this creation. It takes a special mind to conceive of such a thing, we are not worthy!

Here are some samples we recorded.
We recommend 1080P or higher for the best sound quality~

Cheers,

Alan

So many nuances, lines and crevices that are all masterfully executed and tie it all together so nicely. Some serious woodworking chops in full display.
Unbelievable!
