A commission build from a year or so back, using Maple and Sitka, and highlights of figured Blackwood

Cheers

Wow.

That is beautiful. I would love to hear a recording if you have anything.

I'm nearing the completion of my own archie and your stuff both inspires and intimidates me.
I really admire details like the bound head stock and laminated pick guard. So nice.

Looks good.

First time I have seen a strap button on the top side of the neck.
