Default Circle Strings 00 - Bastogne Walnut/Sinker Redwood

I really love my Circle Strings parlor so I decided to get back on Adam Buchwald's wait list and get a 00. I asked Adam to come up with something a little different for the rosette. I wanted something geometric that incorporated a variety of woods. Adam came up with this design made from walnut, macassar ebony, flamed maple, ziricote, and redwood. I think he knocked it out of the park.

Specs:
14 fret 00 24.75" scale
B/S - Bastogne Walnut
Top - Sinker Redwood
Bindings and side purfling - Ebony
1 13/16" nut
2.25" string spacing
12-16" compound radius ebony fretboard
Waverly tuners with black buttons.

Knocked it out of the park he did!! Very clever & pleasing rosette, as well as top-notch woods! Let me know if you can't go through with the commission!!!

Steve, that guitar is just too pretty to give up. I'm chomping at the bit to get my hands on it.

Sides are bent and braces are glued and carved. I really am anxious to get my hands on this guitar.

He's got great detail even on the top of the rosette! I'm wondering how he's not going to cover it up w/the fretboard!

After many hours of labor, I'm father to a bouncing baby box.

A glass of wine (or two) is in order, I think!

When this baby arrives, my hand might be shaking too much to pour.
