Honduran Rosewood Baritone

Post by Allen » Thu Apr 02, 2020 3:56 pm

I love working with Honduran Rosewood. It rings like a brass bell when you tap it. And curly Jarrah is a perfect low key/classy combo for bindings. This is a 20" scale length with a compound radius fret board and tuned to DGBE. Rubner machine heads and a K&K Aloha Twin pickup. Finished in high gloss polyurethane.

The client requested a CrossRock fibreglass case. First time I've seen one as they aren't available in Australia. Must say that they are by far the nicest case I've ever seen. Certainly worth the upgrade cost on a high end instrument.

Very nice Mr McFarlen. I am working on the fingerboard for my current guitar build and I am going to steal your idea for the nice curved and bound end of the fb at the soundhole. Just giving credit now, ‘ cause later I probably won’t remember where I got that idea.
