As mentioned in a couple of earlier posts, I’m giving in to the number of requests to build some guitars! As usual, not everybody wants the same thing, so to get the ball rolling I’m starting with an OM sized electro-acoustic steel strung model. As you can see from the picture, the mould has been started on. Alongside is an already joined slice of walnut that will probably feature as the first example’s back, used here just to mark out the shape for assessment.
It is a job that will get fitted in as and when I have some spare time from jobs like the Tenor Uke being made for Noel, which will feature a Laburnum fretboard from our recently acquired stash.
