#13 update

While I wait for some supplies to show up, I am working on the neck of #13. The fretboard is done, just need to work on the headstock and neck fitting, etc.

The fretboard inlay is pretty simple. Also, since the thickness of the fretboard is significantly thicker (because it’s nylon string), I can’t use my typical headstock design. I decided to make it pretty plain.


#13 update

I got #13 all closed up. I started making the neck as well (nothing special, no laminates).

Here are some pictures.

#13 Started

Man… I need to start finishing guitars before I start new ones. Way to many guitars in my garage right now. Oh well, the weather is getting better and I should be able to push forward with finishing soon.

While I was home on paternity leave, I started guitar #12. Here are the stats.

B&S: Black LimbaSoundboard: Lutz Spruce
Binding: Cuban Mahogany
Fretboard & Bridge: Indian Rosewood

This guitar I wanted to keep at home for my kids to bang on. Since it is being built for the younger crowd, I’ll be making this a nylon stringed guitar. Since it’s a nylon stringed guitar, I’ll be changing my brace layout to mimic the Torres style classical bracing.
