We started another pair of builds today. Here Rick is plotting out the sides for #179, A tenor headed to Alan in California.
this tenor will have an East Indian Rosewood back and sides and a bear claw Sitka Spruce soundboard. A beautiful and powerful combination. One of my favorites.
And here is the back, a beautiful piece of East Indian Rosewood that I am making $50.00 up-charge for. I recently secured a large supply of amazing EIR "wildwood" and am excited to offer it.
#178 will be an interesting build, a long necked Concert of Tiger Striped Maple and Bear Claw Spruce. It will be a looker for sure, but what will the tenor neck on a concert body sound like. We are going to find out. Here is one of the sides just sawn to shape.
Darn ! forgot to photograph the maple back, but its a beauty, you will see it later.
