  • Guitar Of The Month - April 2015

    @SwedishLuthier, "The Father/Daughter Guitar"

    "Here is 'The Father/Daughter guitar' built by my daughter with a helping hand from me. An alto guitar with a nice story behind it. A very rudimentary build thread can be found 

    "This is a scaled down version of my EvenStar acoustic guitar. It is based around the work of Kasha/Schneider and uses an adaptation of their bracing pattern and a somewhat more "normal" bridge. The back and side wood is Bloodwood, the top is Sitka Spruce, the neck maple and the fretboard, bridge and sound hole ring is all Bloodwood. Bindings, end graft and heel cap is red sparkling celluloid. The scale is almost exactly 21" (actually just a 25" scale chopped of at the third fret). The guitar is finished in tung oil and rubbed down with steel wool to create a matte satin sheen.

    "Feel free to ask any questions in the build thread!
