Hello all, hoped you wouldn't mind me sharing my latest guitar with you. I wanted to build a guitar from reclaimed materials for the Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin this year (which was cancelled, unsurprisingly). Well, this is the end result!
It was made from an old mahogany tabletop, a kitchen worktop, an oak beam from a house and some cedar floorboards. The bracing is pretty unconventional since I had to work with what I had. For various reasons the top had to be 1.6mm thick (!) so I lattice braced it in addition to the usual ladder bracing. Seems to have worked out in the end (it hasn't collapsed!), and the sound is brighter than my usual guitars. The rhythm sound is very crisp and modern.
The fingerboard has some kandinksy-inspired inlays to continue a theme from some of my previous instruments. Let me know what you think!
