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…….1391720941943 1391720942510 1391720954928 1391720955630 1384172532437 1384172759925 1384172765303 1384172770812 1384172776256 1384436898408 1385251071143 1385474324163 1391720921863 1391720922533 1391720933361 IMG_2079 IMG_2075 IMG_2076 IMG_2077 IMG_2078
