Ziricote Spruce Classical #155

Post by Steve.Toscano » Sat Jan 02, 2021 10:10 pm

Some special timbers used on this one.
I had in my rack for a number of years what i considered a very very special top piece, extremely stiff and light with nice bearclaw.
I held onto this piece waiting for the right back and sides to match it up with, then along came this stunning set of Ziricote, probably the nicest I've seen. So the match was made and here's the result.
Spruce top, Ziricote back and sides, QLD Maple neck, ebony fretboard, ebony bindings, rosewood bridge. My version of 7 fan asymetrical braceing.
She's warm, ultra responsive, loud and damn sexy (photos dont do her justice).

This is also a rare one for me in that she is not a commission build and will be put onto the open market.

Steve that looks wonderful. Great rosette as well.

Enough to cheer me up on a fiercely cold and grey day in the UK! Good job I don't live your way or I'd be knocking on the door!

155 guitars is pretty impressive too.

Cheers Dave
