GC Guitars Update

These are the finishing photos of the next two guitars coming down the pipe. Obviously, they should speak for themselves, but these are going to be sweet when then they are done. I believe the customer is going to be very happy.

Thanks for looking!

A couple more

This is a shot of Dave Goodrich's granadillo back. Though he does not want a high gloss finish, and oil/ shellac application really brings out the warmth in this wood. In my humble opinion, it sounds 10 times better than it looks.
Then it occurred to me that the ziricote twins were inhabiting the molds that I need to move forward with Dave's guitar, so they have been getting some attention again as well. I glued up the back on #2, and am working on their tops now.

Goodrich's Bryleigh Series

Well, this is an order to be finished sometime in the summer, but I have been getting a head start because I really just felt like working on it. It is a Bryleigh Series for a close friend, with granadillo back and sides and a carpathian top. I used granadillo for both rosette rings as well, and will be using a mixture of sitka and carpathian for the bracewood.
