Mainly Tassie Classical

Post by martintaylor » Fri Sep 04, 2020 3:39 pm

Hi fellow guitar lovers. This one is my latest classical build. Fan braced, King Billy soundboard, Blackheart Sassafras back and sides, Tiger Myrtle fretboard, bridge and armrest, Fijian Mahogany Neck. The rosette is from a neighbours tree that was cut down a couple of years ago. A local Central Coast Casuarina I think that has some nice spalting.

What a beauty! The looks so good.
What do you think of King Billy for a soundboard?
Do you have a demo yet I would love to hear it?
Sensational build thanks for sharing.
Cheers
