I just finished the first of a build of 3 round neck reso guitars. This one is built from Michigan Flamed Maple and is destined for a customer in Switzerland.

My thanks to OLF member Andy Birko for spending a ton of time and effort in writing his CNC program to make my Reso necks. I can't say enough for his necks!

Here is a link to a demo of one of my Resonators at Sound Pure Studios https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baB6v9Y0PQU

Ok. I generally don't like bursts. That is the most amazing burst I've ever seen! The pictures make it look like a highly arched back caught in a piece of dark amber. Just amazing.

Absolutely Lovely…… Couple of questions: [before I build one for myself]

Did you use a "traditional" sound well or posts and baffle?

What kind of neck joint?

Again beautifully done….
