 This is my latest build. It's based on an Orchestra Model in terms of body dimensions. The top is spruce, the back and sides are sycamore. They say you learn from your mistakes and I made plenty of this one, probably only visible to the maker!!!

They say you learn from your mistakes

Every build always presents many learning opportunities - wood is not a predictable material, every piece is different!  If the instrument is playable, then the opportunity was well taken.  If the instrument also looks stunning (as yours does), then you pass with flying colours!!

What a beautiful guitar! Extremely classy and elegant but understated at the same time.

We can all look at our instruments, or many other things in our lives, and see mistakes we have made, but there is no law that says we have to point them out to other people if we have resolved the problem and learnt from our errors. If you can’t hear the mistakes that you say you have made when you play the instrument then they are not really serious guitar making mistakes, and you should just be proud to have built something so wonderful.

Thanks, that's encouraging, I'm drawing my first acoustic right now and want to make it quite slim, I was thinking maybe about 105mm.
