Wow, that's really ornate - especially the carving on the head. Lovely work. Well done.

I wish you wouldn't post photos of such a beautiful instrument - they make me lust for it. :wink:

She needs gut and silk strings...Why is it people pay thousands for guitars but won't splurge 100$ on strings? I know fabulous intonation of modern technology is good...but those intestines sound magical.

Beautiful guitar.

I see the background of the last photo is white whereas that of the other photos it is a warm yellowish (for want of a better word) and indeed the photos seem to have a warm yellowish glow about them. I was wondering whether that is the result of you adjusting the colour balance within photo editing software or whether those photos do actually represent the correct colour tones of the guitars.

Lol, that's a good point. Guitarists have it easy, compared to the price of a quality set of cello strings. :shock:

Lovely guitar; good work.

She's beautiful Jim! You're not helping my GAS! :)

Will you be posting specs about woods used, bracing, etc. ?
