This is a recent build for a customer in Bowling Green, KY.
He is both an electric and acoustic guitar player and wanted something with a darker wood.
The Santos I got from a local place that makes custom staircases. They have a whole warehouse full of gorgeous wood and a lot of different kinds.
I decided to sandwich strips of clear pine to add a little accent to the piece. Working with this Mahogany was really fun.
Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on the finish (polyurethane with gradual finer grits and ultimately 0000 steel wool).
