MCH Posted March 2, 2007 Report Share Posted March 2, 2007 (edited) A Zachary design. I just look at the guitars and draw out free hand what I see. So obviously this is not a direct replica of the Zach guitar. There are various woods involved in this build, some may be considered not the usual choices. The neck is maple/rosewood, 25 1/2' scale - 22 frets. The body is basically three layer plys of different woods. The back is 3/4" laminated mahogany (ribbon grain). The middle ply consists of 3 1/4" (3/4" thickness) purpleheart in the centre (this my soundboard, the neck is attached to this) with 3/4" pine on the wings. The top ply is 1/2" oak laminated for width. This top layer also has the grain running diagonally, while the other 2 layer are vertically inline with the neck. The body is also some what chambered. The stand is also one of the style of stands I make for my guitars. http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/1857/guitarbuildz2nz3.jpg http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/3563/guitarbuildz3lm3.jpg http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/4304/guitarbuildz4li2.jpg Will post more pics as the project progresses. I think I may posted this in the wrong section. Should have been Work In Progress. Edited March 2, 2007 by MCH Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
