After three weeks of applying the finish, my first guitar is finally done.
The top is made of Spruce, while the back and sides are of Indian Rosewood. The neck is Sapele, with a Macassar Ebony fingerboard. The inlay is made of wood fiber sheets and the binding is Ebony.
This is a very big learning experience; from using a hand plane, scraper, chisel, bending wood, and finishing. And I still have a lot of details to learn and work on. To quote a teacher of mine, “I would like to see it as if it has grown into the created object”, which I think I still have not achieved, but hope to get to. I just hope it won’t take me another five months to make another.
