This guitar is my first fixed bridge instrument and my first bolt on neck. The bolt on neck was an eleventh hour decision, it was going to be an ordinary dovetail. I’m thinking of future adjustments. I’ll continue dovetailing archtops and mandolins. The guitar was built from 000 plans that have been altered slightly. I want to use the same mold to build a 15in archtop.
back, sides and binding … southern sily oak
neck ….. mahognay and silver ash
finger board, head veneer, bridge ….. solomon blackwood
