Walnut and Cedar Jumbo Building

Here’s a new guitar I’m building for a nice young new Dad in Idaho…I figured I’d share this the week after Father’s Day with him, and all of you! It is a Claro Walnut cutaway body, with a Cedar top jumbo…it will have a big, warm, massage-like quality to it, with just enough bang to give it some power. I can’t wait to finish it! These photos show my 10 year old son watching me glue on the lining clamps as I explain how important they are structurally…”These little guys are what hold the top to the rim…we need to make sure they’re on really right!”

You can see the rim and linings being installed both without and with the back joined to the rim. Please visit my website CustomGuitars.com to see more on these topics!
