I’ve been working on a guitar that I call Marks Guitar #2 because the first one was built for Mark Thies of Markosa Studios (a very fine recording studio in Roeland Park KS) http://www.markosa.com/home.asp he wanted an acoustic guitar that was not so boomy for recording purposes so I said Maple is a good choice for the treble end of the sound spectrum ( tryin’ to sound educated you know) well it turned out to be a hit with me as well as him so I decided I wanted one too. I made the guitar from quilted Maple and Ebony throughout except some tiny B/W purfiling around the inside of the Ebony binding. The difference this time was I used Engelman Spruce for the top instead of Sitka. I wanted it to be a little less treble and to warm up the sound. ( I will hate myself if I was wrong..) the bracing being all Sitka with a Maple neck block. Here are some picks of the process…….
