Meiros Guitar - Construction Video

Post by Ricardo Meirinhos » Tue May 15, 2018 9:54 pm

Here is a short video with the summary of the construction of my last guitar, accompanied by Guitarist Nuno Pinto with the Meiros # 3 Guitar.

The sound was recorded at home without post production work.

Comments are always welcome so that the next one gets even better.

PS: For better sound and image choose HD at youtube.

nice guitar, nice workmanship and nice playing. one question, at around 1:40 a skeleton shape was presented and I cannot figure out what it was or where it went. was it part of the inside of the sandwich between the spruce and cedar? if so, what was the intended effect? I originally thought it was going to be part of two sound holes but obviously it was not. thanks.
be true to the one you love but have many flings with different guitars

Yes. It is made of balsa wood to make the top lighter.
