Just the latest guitar, haven’t added strings yet so don’t ask how it sounds. ;-)

The sides and back are cherry
The neck is hard maple with walnut stripes
The sound board is northern basswood
This is a special order and what I like to do best, one of a kind .
Design is wood burned and colored with oil pencil and airbrush.

Beautiful work, Bob.

If you can locate Elvis, I’m sure he’d enjoy strummin’ “Hound Dog” on this one!

Wow!. I play guitar and would love to own an instrument like this. I am hoping to build one some day. Thanks for the pics.

how wonderful – my first look tugged at some tears as it reminded me of my Uncle and my husband who used to do a lot of coon hunting together, many years ago now…

then looking at the pix, as it stands upright, it appears that the dog is covering ground, cornering the raccoon and then as the instrument is tilted to play, the dog has treed the raccoon. Absolutely love it. Well done.

When you laminate the neck do you still use a truss rod? Nice job!!

That looks like a really fine instrument Bob. I don’t think the word ‘just’ applies!

To rikkor, yes even with the lamination I use a 2 way action trussrod.
Thanks for all the kind comments.

Hi mrtrim, yes the art work is mine, the only parts of my guitars I don’t make, are the metal parts.

Absolutely beautiful guitar. My son is an avid guitar player and collector. He has about 30 or 40 guitars now and has been trying to get me for some time to build one with him – I’d love to work on one, but I’m afraid that one like your guitar is far beyond my capabilities. Nice work.
