A new Acoustic from LGM Guitars


Recommended Posts

Well, this probably should be in the acoustic section, but that section just doesn't get as much traffic and I'm proud of this puppy, I wanna show it off!! LOL

besides, this is inlays and finishing chat, and it's inlayed, and has a finish on it, and it's almost finished LOL!!!!!! I just need to leave it strung up a couple days to let the wood move under tension and then I'll take it apart once more, and finish the whole thing! But man is looks sounds and plays great! :D

Hey guys, thanks for the kind words.

The guitar is as follows,

Rosewood back and sides

Sitka Spruce top

Mahogany neck

Ebony fretboard

Abalone/brass/gold/wood inlays

Dunlop 6140 frets (Universe frets LOL)

The Volute on the back of the neck (the diamond shape) is for added material for a little extra strength. I believe it's a martin idea.

The action is really low, less than 1mm at the 12th, it plays beautifully. It has a Fishman transducer piezo pickup in it, and it sounds phenominal!

The neck profile is close to what a slightly narrower Universe neck would be, but little thicker. There is quite a bit of abalone in this guitar, the neck inlay, headstock inlay, bridge inlay, and the neck heel are all abalone

It's a wonderful guitar, I am very happy indeed :D
