This is a guitar built for Bill Kitchens in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s made of Cocobola with an Adirondack Spruce Top. Acoustically, and aesthetically, it may be my best work to date.

nice guitar I wonder what it would have looked like with a thin piece of coco as the pick guard. Just a thought. Its a shame that only your belly gets to look at it when you play. Just an aside; has anyone seen Taylor swifts guitar? That is the curliest maple I think I have ever seen

Wow is right! That is an amazing grain. I would be afraid to brush up against it with anything but my skin. That’s too beautiful to risk a scratch. (No pun intended) Nice guitar!

The binding is curly maple and I am very lucky to know this great luthier and call him my friend. (He’s one helluva picker too)
