O size Englemann and Sassafras

Post by Jim » Fri Apr 02, 2021 9:58 am

Hi All,

I've been slack about posting lately but have been plodding away slowly and have recently completed a few builds. Here's the first:

Size 0
Englemann Spruce
Sassafras back and sides
Casurina fretboard and bridge
Laminate silky oak and Houn neck.

It's a beautifully bright and articulate little thing, very happy!

Very nice Jim, the casurina looks a lot like the river oak I have seen. Lovely multi-part neck too

Great looking little guitar Jim. Nice work on the pyramid bridge.

Hi Jim,
That is such a lovely little guitar. 0 size guitars are my favourite guitar to play as they are so intimate in size and usually have long sustain and a tone of their own. Great work mate.
Cheers

Great guitar build. I like the the timber neck arrangement.
