Just a note to let you know the guitar arrived yesterday without a scratch.
The guitar is just great! It looks like it's a relic from the twenties in mint condition. The shape and size, the inlays, the cedar top, and the binding and purfling combine to give it a really old look. It's just what I had in mind. I love it!
The cedar looks like it's a hundred years old just like you said, and the purfling turned out nice. I especially like it on the sides and back. Your diamond and squares inlay on the fretboard looks great too.
And, the choice of wood is excellent. It all looks great and has that look of a really old guitar.
The sound is good right out of the box. The treble sounds pretty sweet, and the bass is kinda thumpy like I wanted. I think after a few months of settling in, it will sound very nice, and just get better and better with time and playing.
Anyway, thanks again for taking on this project and doing such a wonderful job!
