For this guitar, the woods are Khaya, Sitka Spruce, Ebony and Padauk which are creating lovely honey and bright red-gold accents.
Bracing on the front and back is painstakingly chiseled, sanded and tuned.
Rosettes can be elaborate or simple - an expression of the luthier's imagination.
This signature soundport allows the sound waves to resonate up to the guitar player.
The Luthier's label and signature are added before the top is attached. The signature is located on the back of the face of the guitar.
The body is complete, awaiting the construction of the neck and the final finishing with linseed oil and beeswax.
