Guitar #018  

Acoustic Honduras Mahogany OO 12th fret

 

Solid Sitka Spruce top, Honduras Mahogany back and sides, Honduras Mahogany neck.

Completed August 4th 2004 

 

This guitar has been built for a specific person.  She wanted a guitar similar in size to a classical guitar, but easier to play.  A 12th fret neck to body joint and a size similar to a classic Martin OO sounded like it would fit the bill.  Because of its size and the use of Honduras Mahogany it is vary light in weight.  This guitar also has a thinner body than a Dreadnought and therefore has less air to push giving a nice balanced sound but with less volume.
