It is a beautiful guitar. From the pic it looks like you built it in a guitar building class. Was this your first?

Yeah, very classy looking guitar. I want one. And I want one of those Hegner’s saw in the background too. Pretty work, I like the look of the lighter fret bar with the deeper body.

Great job. I’ve not seen many guitars with a light colored neck. It really wakes up the fine figures in the maple body. Great finish, too!

The pick ups are Okay sound quality. Solid 2” thick maple body, 1/2” thick maple veneered neck with walnut underneath to show at the turner area. Routing the back was rough. I don’t play, So this student was playing when I took the picture. I will hope to be teaching this class in the fall so I can give more details and pics starting around mid-August/September.

Looks like a PRS design. A great looking guitar. My sons wants us to build one.
