Currently on the workbench is a Brazilian Rosewood parlor guitar with elegant Black & White Striped Ebony accents. As much as I enjoy working with a client to design their dream guitar, it is also incredibly satisfying to rummage through the wood stash to select woods with a specific aesthetic vision and tone quality in mind. I can't wait to string up this guitar!
Pale Moon Ebony is like no other wood that I have worked with. The figure and color contrast are mesmerizing. Creative possibilities are endless with this wood. This guitar was specifically built for the 2020 La Conner Guitar Festival. Unfortunately, the show has been postponed due to Covid-19. My best wishes go out to all families and business owners. Be well friends.
