Here are some more photos of my recent guitar build.
These high dynamic range photos really show off the wood… and a bit of our backdrop too. 😉
Here are some pictures of the build process:
I just finished a commissioned guitar build for a local furniture maker and wood dealer. He provided rough-shaped box elder burl for two solid guitar bodies. One suggests the elegant style of the old Les Paul, and the other suggests the rugged and functional Fender Stratocaster.
It isn’t common to use box elder in an instrument, and these guitars are quite heavy. But they look amazing and play just fine.
