I have completed a new instrument that I have been working on for a while now. It is stunning.
This acoustic features a Redwood top, Cocobolo back and sides, Bloodwood purfling with a coral and BW/WB purfling, 24.9 scale, hand carved mahogany neck with chippendale headstock, ebony fingerboard with hand cut and inlayed white/gold mother of pearl vine with abalone leaves, white gold MOP vine inlay with abalone leaves and white/gold pearl JR logo on headstock, hand cut ebony and cocobolo geometric rosette with black/brown fillet and binding, ebony w/w/b/w endpiece, rosewood heel-cap, herringbone back centerstrip and ebony bridge with bone nut and saddle. This has a varnish finish.
Although I have not had the time to properly photograph it I am posting some quick photos here. Enjoy!
