So here is my 9th guitar. It was built for a very good friend of mine as a gift for his father.
Specs:
Tasmanian blackwood (acacia) back & sides
Lutz Spruce top
Honduran Mahogany one piece neck
Brazilian Rosewood – fretboard, headstock veneer, bindings, tail wedge, heal cap, bridge and bridge pins
w/b/w purfling lines through out.
Semi-Hemispherical fret end treatment
Zipflex blue paua purflings on the top and the back strip
Blue paua shell inlay at headstock and fretboard (owners signature)
Gotoh 510 cosmo black tuners
Finish is nitro

Thanks for looking

Rod, I hope one day when some money frees up to be able to speak with you about a commission. I love the shape of your guitars. Very nice aesthetics. Great guitar!!
