Beautiful job! I love the bubinga and the maple burl in the rosette. What type of spruce does this have?...it looks good too….and so is the finish.
Thanks for posting it.

Thanks Martin, It’s a sitka spruce top with “bear claw” figure.

Thanks all for your kind words. As far as a blog goes, I’ve just started building an archtop guitar; maybe I will start a blog on that with photo’s as the project progresses. Again, I thank all of you for your encouragement.

That is drop dead gorgeous. Cant want to see the archtop blog. I like seeing projects come to life, especially instruments. Out of curiousity, what do you have to do different bracing-wise with a 12 string? Are they just thicker, or a few more added, or totally different from how the same guitar in a 6 string would get braced? I know there got to be a ton of force working on it.

What a beautiful instrument. I’m an accomplished guitarist and know the magical qualities of a 12 string. My only criticism: Don’t apostrophise plurals! Pet peeve.

That is a great looking guitar. My son want me to help him make one. It would be nice to have some photo help.
