Making Instruments Out Of Music
This one is a smaller version of the 27String with 2 pre-amps on board.
-Figured spruce top with sculpted interlocking top bracing and 3-piece back bracing shaped and placed to address the higher tension areas;
-Using some very serious quilted mahogany for the back, sides and bass chamber top.
-Also, had a very dense piece of mahogany for the six string neck, matching back stripe and the bass side peghead.
-Using purple heart wood for the binding trim, cross-banding behind the bass head-stock, 25.5" scale compound radius fingerboard,
the three 3D suns sound holes, bridge and tailpiece was the biggest challenge.
Steam shaping purple heart was by far the most difficult part of this build.
This combo of features gives a unique feel and natural resonance that inspires a particular style of melody. My go-to when I simply need a 6 String. (With extra bass options, of course)
