Default Taran Tirga Mhor Build

I owned a used version of the smallest Taran model for a while and was so impressed with it, I traded up to a custom build. The Tirga Mhor 12 fret was the perfect fit. I have arthritis pretty bad in my left shoulder so those longer 14 fret reaches are over for this lifetime.

This particular instrument is one of the signature models so it has some amazing features. The back and sides are Pernambuco and the top a European Spruce. Taran uses a slight fan fret (0.5" scale delta) which will not be a problem. I've had several fan frets and I loved them all as long as they had less than a 0.75" scale difference. Any larger than that and it got awkward for me on the lower frets.

Anyway, I'll update the thread with pictures as they arrive. Judging from the progress to date, I'm guessing delivery in May.

Was really cool hearing the tap tone of the pernambuco sets at the shop a few months ago. It has a pure sound which seemed to further confirm what I thought I heard on the other 3 pernambuco guitars I've played, but there was still some nice depth down low. Looking forward to seeing this build progress, congratulations!
