I’m really curious how the sound of a basswood top compares to spruce or cedar.

That woodburning remindes me of traditional carved leather. Great Job!

To Max, this guitar will not be in the competition, but will be on display at the International Association of Pyrographic Artists booth. To Matt and Robert so far I’v had only good comments about the sound of basswood soundboards. I will point out, northern basswood is all I use, from northern Wisconsin. We have a lot of basswood here in Ohio but it is not good for guitar tops, it grows to fast and is softer then wood from the north.

I was thinking the same thing Dennis. It looks like a beautifully tooled saddle. Very nice Bob.

Say Bob, that pyrography sure looks like a leather pattern. I never thought of doing it this way . Great job. I pick and have thought about adding some carved leather to my Ibanez. I haven’t because I don’t know what it would do to the sound. A really neat looking guitar.

Beautiful guitar. I would like to hear it. The pyrography, (I learned a new word,) is beautiful also.
