A proud and gratifying moment; to be part of this group of women luthiers from all parts of the world. Women builders attending the show were called onto the stage by Linda Manzer at the end of her award presentation. A heartfelt thank you to Robert Baker Rorick for bringing us together at the 2018 Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase. There is still only a handful of women building instruments, but the numbers are growing!
The back and sides of this guitar are made with Flamewood. It is a true Rosewood originating from Laos, SE Asia. Characteristics are hard, dense, and displays a beautiful chatoyance. This wood is similar to Cocobolo but much harder to find. To complement straight quartersawn grain of the Flamewood, I have selected a master grade Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top. Available, please inquire.
