June 28th, 2017 – Diablita

I’ve been quite busy in the workshop and I’ve been neglecting to update you on my projects! This is the first of three posts coming up.
 
Here we have Diablita, a “Nouveau Flamenca” styled guitar in the stype of Francisco Siplicio’s work. He made many highly-sought guitars in the 1920s. This example features the famous split sound hole. The top of Port Orford Cedar, known for its straight grain. The sides and back are a wonderful flamed maple. The guitar features Waverly tuners and is being crafted for a wonderful and skilled musician. Adrian is a composer, arranger and conductor focusing on Jazz.
 
Stay tuned for more images and details of this lovely guitar.
