Thank you Marcus. He was pleased to hear your kind words. And he said you understood the way he reasoned building the guitar this way.Marcus Dominelli wrote:Thanks for posting. I like what he's doing, both artistically and technically. He does his double top laminations in what appears to be, the same way I do mine - he's leaving a solid area around the bridge.
This is a really good idea, because it allows the maker to re-glue and/or remove the bridge at a some point in the future, if need be. Most DT makers I've seen don't have solid wood around the bridge, and it will pretty much make the guitar unrepairable in the future.
I like his rosette too. Nice work.
Actually this guitar will not be heavy according to my luthier. Indeed, the number of layer of wood is irrevelant, the true factor is the thickness of the sides and back, and the wood used (all the wood does not have the same weight and density). For the sides he used cedro for the inside which is a light wood.Lovemyguitar wrote:This might be a dumb question, but will this be a rather heavy guitar? All those layers of wood/glue must weigh a fair bit, don't they? It certainly looks like it will be very beautiful -- that spruce top and rosette are exquisite.
It is going to have braces as you can see on the picture number 9.Is the back going to have braces, or be an arched laminate? If I'd have to guess I'd say with bracing...
Also, is it going to have an elevated fingerboard? He's obviously building the neck and body separately.
