I was excited to say the least, when my client approached me about incorporating a Charles Rennie Mackintosh theme into his Modern Dreadnought Cutaway. It was a unique challenge to create CRM inspired designs that are meaningful to my client.
Though rare and expensive, especially in fine quality, Brazilian Rosewood is traditionally regarded as the finest of tonewoods. It offers clarity, a warm rich tone with full bases and sparkling trebles. This wood is a pleasure to work with; it rings out like a bell when tapped, and dust particles fill the shop with a sweet intoxicating scent. This Concert Style guitar back boasts a striking sapwood center with contrasting dark-brown marbled figure. I will be building a few more instruments with this premier tonewood.
