Default NGD: Tahoe Guitars 000-12 Old Growth Honduran Mahogany/Carpathian Spruce

Today I took delivery of my new Tahoe Guitar Co. 000-12 in old growth figured Honduran Mahogany and Carpathian Spruce. It sounds great and promises to become even better sounding over the next days/weeks/months/years. It plays great, as well.

Click for build thread

Many, many thanks to luthier Larry Nair for building another fine guitar, and for his continued patience and generosity. He is a top-notch guy with whom to work.

A few pics of the completed guitar follow.

Many thanks! I agree...very beautiful, with tone to match. Now time to start playing her in.


Here is a video of the new guitar. The sound recorded through the camera's internal mic does not do it justice, but it gives some idea of the tone with less than two hours play time on the guitar. It will sound better and better over time...
