First off, I’d like to thank Dan, Eklund for the great Guitar pattern in the Holiday issue of SSW&C magazine about a year ago.
This was so fun yet so hard for me to cut. It was a great challenge for me. I used 17 different woods in this. I like the colors I used but may do a second one and make the guitars more of the colors I used to play. I also used a little paint to paint the tuners. But only on a few. I don’t like to use paint on this kind of stuff. I haven’t picked up a guitar in years. Some of the woods used are Purple Heart, Yellow heart, Padauk, Maple, Oak, and I use Rosewood for some of the necks on the guitars. Just like real ones. Man that stuff killed me even with a mask. Make sure you wear your masks everyone. I hope you enjoy and thanks again Dan and also Al, Intarsia92 for your great work on the ones you did. They guided me in my pursuit to make mine. Two pictures are taken outside to show the great wood colors. The third is inside hanging on the wall. Thanks for looking and enjoy.
