A Style and OM hanging to dry.
When the guitars are being sprayed, they have to sit, in between coats of nitrocellulose lacquer, to dry and "off gas", which releases the gasses and hardens the finish. They have about 12-14 coats of finish applied in total. The A style on the left is African mahogany while the guitar on the right is the Tazmanian Red Myrtle OM. A style is sold.
Glueing top braces.
This is the Go Jig, which eliminates the needs for clamps, which would be difficult to do with the braces. The braces are carved to final shapes after they are glued in place.
OM sealed back.
The middle portion of this back is Ziricote or Mexican Blackwood. It is beautiful against the flame Maple!
Maple necks hanging to dry.
The necks from the Cocobolo Jumbo and the Maple OM, one sprayed with natural nitrocellulose finish and one tinted to Vintage Amber nitro lacquer.
Maple Jumbo neck.
This is a three piece neck with a mahogany heel cap, made for the Jumbo guitar. Sold.
Jumbo back braces
This is the body of the Cocobolo Jumbo before the top is installed, showing the typical ladder bracing of guitar backs. The lines against the sides are Mahogany braces to stiffen and protect the sides. Sold.
