Latest build "Bertha"

Recommended Posts

New here! Located in northern Sweden, where i live with my SO and 4 cats in a small village with 10 inhabitants. Been building on and off for maybe 10 years, with varied levels of commitment. This is my first own design, and i try to use as much local wood as possible. 

The neck is a 5-piece laminate from flamed birch and mahogany with a double action truss rod and a fretboard of Pau Ferro. Body wings are made from a reclaimed barn floor of spruce(i think). Top wood is sallow burl and the head is birch burl. 

27,5" scale length, 6100 frets, approx 9-12" compund radius, Gotoh tuners, Tooyful individual bridge saddles, Dimarzio Super 3, compensated nut.

Finished with linseed oil - shellac - satin nitro.

So... Hi guys! Guessing i am here to stay! Fun to hang around likeminded people! Cheers!

Hi @mattijuntunen and a very warm welcome :)

Beautiful build - I particularly like the carve at the back....just my kind of build.  I can see you will fit in here very nicely :)

Thank you so much! 😃

I think so too. People dont seem scared of cnc's and odd ideas here. Just my place. :)

Welcome!

That thing is gorgeous! Beautiful top and excellent back carve. I'm a fan of carved backs.....every guitar should have one. I'm also a fan of unique volutes.

Hang around and show us your next build when the time comes. We love to watch them come together.

Thank you! 

Totally agreed. Every guitar should fit snuggly against ones body. :)

Yes! Next build will probably have more progress documentation. I'll hang around! Trying to catch up with all the excellent builds around here. So much inspiration!

Welcome Matti,

I have to agree with these guys, that is one lovely guitar. The sallow burl looks almost translucent. I reckon we'd all like to see a few of your other builds.

Thank you so much! Lucked out with that burl. It is rare that they dont have rotten away inside. They grow just below ground these burls. Really weird stuff. 

I will be around for sure. :)
