This is a burly walnut guitar I built for Don Fox, who lives in Hiawassee, Georgia. I’m currently building a sister to it for some friends of his.

That’s a gorgeous instrument, Scott. If it sounds half as good as it looks, I’d love to hear it.

People who make musical instruments could make a short quicktime sound vid of it. Put it on you tube and connect to it.

Very cool, I always wanted to take a guitar making class but when I saw the tools in the Stewart-Mac catalog I was scared away, My wife thinks I spend a lot on tools, that would take it to a whole new level!! But I do believe that one can never have to many tools :-)

Beautiful guitar, yeah I wanna hear what it sounds like.
What is the black small part at the bottom of the top piece? Side and back are solid Jacaranda? I really like the simplicity.
