Thanks Jeff and Broken!  I put a lot of thought into the rosette and he created just what I wanted and I love it!

   Looks good. From what Jeremy tells us and others that's the shape you want in X braces for tone and strength.

After studying these pics, I wish I had the time and wherewithal to experiment on some bracing patterns. But alas, time is running out.

It sounds like you may have done some guitar building.

No, never have. I have made some nuts and saddles and other minor fixes but never built one. I'd like to, but some really great guitars are available for just a little more than the price of materials, making it hard to justify the cost and time involved. The price of a used Larrivee is outrageous.

Joseph, it 's really starting to come together.   I'ts gonna be very special when it's completed.   

Question...   I couldn't figure out why the bridge plate is at an angle as your pictures show and then it occurred to me that it's probably necessary to have it that way because of the multi-scale fanned fret arrangement ??   Is that right ?

Hello Lynn!

That's right, it's because the scale length ranges from 24 3/4" to 25 3/4".  You can see this more clearly on the 1st page of the thread where I have a pic of a cocobolo Green Mountain lefty with a multi-scale ranging from 25-25 3/4".

These are great pics, really showing the detail that goes into a fine instrument, and the perfect response to someone that says "How can you spend $X,000 on a guitar?"

Bluesman, that looks really great, and deep. What does it measure at the bottom?

broKen,

It's about 5" deep, slightly less on the bevel side and slightly more on the side that sits on your knee when you play.  It's got a wedge so that when you sit and play, it leans into your body a bit.
