Blackwood 0 Size

All blackwood 0 Size
Martin short scale
Casurina fretboard and bridge
Blackwood, Crows Ash and mystery wood laminated neck
Sounds really different to my other recently finished 0 Size- darker and more mellow- lot of headroom.

Beautiful work Trent- been meaning to have a go at some bevels but must admit I find it a bit intimidating- these look superb!

Re: My pore filling

I've had Allen's experience with the pumice/french polish- amazing but hugely time consuming and hard work. Just purchased the colortone clear waterbased pore filler from stewmac- will let you know how it goes.

I also have the guitar one with the temperature control and have been very happy with it. They'll put an Australian plug on there too if you ask.

Re: Bunya/Silky 000-12

Thanks Gents,
I'm really happy with the sound, I tried to take my time voicing the top so I'm thrilled it turned out like it did.
The stain is Colortone tobacco brown from Stewmac.
