Post by 56nortondomy » Sun Oct 04, 2020 4:57 pm

I finished this guitar recently, it's turned out quite good, i'll attach some links if anyone wants a listen.
Top master grade sitka spruce from Brent Cole
B/s figured b/w from Tim. ( thanks Tim )
Neck, finger rest, tail piece and front headstock veneer all b/w
Ebony f/b
Eirw bridge
Jarrah bindings
There's 2 links 1 for the Benedetto pickup and 1 for the K&K twin spot.

Yes that is a classy Archtop build.
Beautiful Blackwood and fabulous finish.
I do like the neck humbucker tone it is creamy.
Congratulations Wayne, another great instrument.
Cheers
