This is the big brother to my earlier posted Jnr. Australian Red Cedar top (hand shaped), Mahogany Body and neck, Rosewood fretboard, Maple bindings, Ebony Pickguard, headstock and covers, Golden Age PAF pups. Pre-cat Nitro spray. I love carving the tops. I do it freehand without templates as I want it to be as organic an experience as possible. I understand the efficiency of CNC etc but getting my hands on the timber and shaping it is the most enjoyable part, as is hand shaping the necks. Cello is the next build so even more carving!

beautiful work my friend! I have a lot of respect for people who don't rely on CNC machines. knowing that a human being did the work, how much effort it takes, and their attention to detail is what makes a guitar like this a true work of art.
