Holding the new guitar Anadhara I made in July 2014
The inside of a new guitar, made from Maple and Italian European Spruce. 2015.
Routing the channel to hold the centre motif
A finished rosette. The top can now have the struts underneath fitted. Once this has been done the neck and sides can be fitted to the front of the guitar.
All my guitars are named, this one is named Doreen after My Grandma, Doreen Lawson.
Rio rosewood is used to strengthen the sides and because the sound travels faster with the grain than across it, the hope is it will send sound directly to the back through the strength strips.
Fitting the bridge using a special bridge clamp
Two finished guitars, one in Maple and the other Indian rosewood, both have European Spruce Tops..
Inside bracing layout, traditional Torres/Romanillos/Barrett method..
