Western red cedar top with a sunburst finish.



Rosewood back and sides with curly maple binding.



Gold tuning machines adorn the peghead which is inlaid with curly maple and mother of pearl. "CG" are the owner's initials.

An ebony bridge was carved in the same motif as the inlay.

Some photos of the design and constuction process:



The inlay design was sketched up and sent to the customer for approval. Some inlay materials were chosen to keep an earthy, natural look.


Here is the rim assembled in a guitar mould.



Basic X bracing inside the top. The braces are sitka spruce with a cedar top.



The inlay before engraving.



The completed guitar "in the white" before any finish has been applied.



A sunburst finish really changes the character of the guitar. The final finish is gloss lacquer.





The completed guitar all strung up and ready to go!
