Here's my latest effort. I think this might be number 17. I still need to improve on my photography. Shoot, I need to improve on my lutherie... eek This one seemed to fight me from the beginning, pfft seemed like it was one thing after another, including, jumping off my bench... gaah Not as satisfying as other builds, but at least it sounds pretty good and I can move on...

Very nice! I like how the purfling and rosette materials match.

Awesome, I have had them fight me before but once its done I always seem to have learned something or found a better method.
Nice job.

Up to your usual high standards, Steve.
I know there is always going to be a beautiful guitar when I see you've posted a new build!

Beautiful!
I'm glad I'm not the only one that seems to have these instruments put up a battle.
I'll have to try EM6000 now that it's available here from Lee Valley. Very nice finish!
