Well, this is the final product of my labors. First of all let me apologize for stopping my posts on it’s construction. The offer of my first book was too good to pass up.
First thing you probably noticed was the color, right. Well, back then they were often painted this way.
I liked the color besides. There is still some gold pinstriping to do which will help to break it up some.
Is suprised me how good it sounds.
For the wood I used:
Case: Peruvian walnut
Keyboard: Basswood, with swiss pear covers on the naturals and holly tops on the sharps.
Soundboard: Sitka Spruce
Bridge: European beech
Misc: Oak, Maple, Southern Yellow Pine and Poplar.
Other than the screws for the hinges, it’s all held together with glue.
