Default Custom Ziricote/Sinker Redwood by Thomas Taylor (Solid Rock Guitar Co)

Hey there. Thread title is self explanatory. Just thought I would document with photos as we go along. I think Im going to go for loud and stealthy looking. The Ziricote is a nice back and side set and the sinker is very good looking. Going to go most of the rest of the way with ebony. Binding, fretboard, etc.

Some initial photos...

Thanks for sharing. It'll be nice to see this come together. I love Sinker, and that Ziricote looks really nice.

Hi Scott, I got the back braced today. Also the top is fitted to the rim. Its looking more like a guitar all the time. I can't wait to hear the Ziricote and Redwood combo- it should be awesome. I'll get some pics to you tomorrow.

While it looks great, I think you'll find it is a great sounding wood combination as well. I have a redwood/zirc OM that is wonderfully rich, responsive and resonant. Looking forward to following this thread, and seeing/hearing the final outcome.

Scott, I have glued on the back with e part epoxy- The ziricote seems a bit oily like cocobolo and Osage thought we.d better not take any chances.
I should be able to flush up the edges and get the tail wedge in.
I'll get more photos to you soon
