Guitar No. 36

Date Completed: 
Thursday, August 25, 2016

This recently completed guitar was a custom order from Eddie DePool in Florida. Each lattice guitar this year has been very distinctive. This one is no exception. I increased the weight of the sides, narrowed the body just slightly and, ask requested, deleted the subtle elevation in the fingerboard bringing the strings a bit closer to the top. The lattice bracing is balsa and carbon fiber unlike the last three lattice guitars which fused spruce with balsa. The resulting guitar is a bit brighter, perhaps a little louder and has a very lyrical 1st string.

(The photo gallery turned out nice. I finally figured out how to do a custom white balance with my camera.)
