Now I've finished the second of the pair I started last June, here it is. Hope you like it.

This time I was practicing using Mahogany back and sides with abalone purfling, rosette and head stock binding. Also Using my signature Isle of Man logo. I have found that some people prefer the "bling" bits and others not so much. Found out that cedar top and mahogany back and sides are a pain to get a decent finish with nitro. Need to try a lot harder with grain filler and sealer in the flatting process. Decided to leave this one without a pickup but certainly impressed with the MiSi condenser.

I've been told by the boss I now have to try and sell these before making any more 😟

Wow. That is a beauty. I can only hope the the guitar I'm building comes out half as nice. 🙂

I'm getting more convinced that I need to build an acoustic.

Well all you have to do is "try"...

Practice on scrap...
