Spruce (Engelmann, Sitka?) top, Brazilian rosewood back & sides; ebony bridge & fretboard,

mahogany neck, heel is capped with laminates of redgum eucalyptus and rosewood, peghead veneered with rosewood; bindings of ebony & rosewood; rosette, position markers, peghead inlay, end and back trim are of 'found' abalone. Saddle and nut are bone. Scale = 24-13/16". Fret board is bound on each side with ebony.

Body is 14.5" wide @ lower bout, upper = 11.25; body length is 19". 3-13/16" depth tapers to 3-7/16" at heel.

Completed in Oct. of 2009, it is already showing significant wear to the french polish finish near the soundhole where I sometimes rest my ring finger, or from an exuberant thumbpick.

I put a little patch of soft velcro on the side of the upper bout and a small hooky patch of velcro on the bottom of my thumbpick so I can keep track of it easily...also helps to improve my grip on the pick.

So satisfying!
