Hi there (I'm not sure whether your name is Lettori or Luca)
I am sure though that your guitar looks good.
 +1 Congratulations, and I'm curious to know more about it. Did you use a plan from a Martin - OM?
Love the look of the European Walnut. I read up on it, and was surprised to learn that species is one which lightens with age, contrary to the American walnut.
What tuners are you going to use, and I assume it has a paddle head stock?

Hi,
yes paddle headstock... I'll use Grover sta tites tuners.
I followed an OM plan for braces and other things, but I made my own plan/design.
Anyway I'll try to keep the blog updated.
Thanks Zohn! Luca

Hi again Luca
 +1 I'm a fan of the Sta-tites as well, great value. I'm having a custom OM built for myself as well out of Euro spruce, Tropical mahogany, and Braz rosewood headplate, fingerboard, bridge and bridgeplate, figured Kiaat rosette, with African Blackwood binding and wedge. The tuners will be the 18:1 Sta-tites.

Very nice work, asp,

Can you tell me how you went about creating that volute neck.  It appears to be perfect!

...one fine chisel and artcraft for the neck volute, I'm glad you like it. As for the trussrod hole cover with magnet pin (thanks Mario Beauregard, you rule!) and the pyramid inspired bridge they are my pride!

Beautiful.  I'm sure it sounds awesome.  How long did the build take from start to finish?

Wow!  That is beautiful.  Really nice looking.  If it sounds as good as it looks, then you're in business!  What was your woodworking background if any?  I'm impressed.

Thanks Ryler... I think it sounds very good... no previous experiences with woodworking, just 10 sets of wood tuners buttons and some years ago some longboard skateboards   rolleye

Great craftsmanship 

I really like the shape of it - kinda reminds me of a Sobel.  Play and enjoy it in good health.
