Guitar 34

Date Completed: 
Thursday, June 16, 2016

This is one of the two display guitars I have completed for the 2016 GFA Convention in Denver, CO and the third of the second generation of lattice models I have completed. I was a bit worried after no. 32 and 33 that the great results could be luck, but I think this guitar really closed the case on that. This guitar represents a lot for me - a continued improvement in the quality of the finish, a more efficient process, and a deeper resonance with a very focused and even response. I look forward to using this instrument to connect with many more great players this year at the Guitar Foundation Convention - some old friends and hopefully many new ones.
