Made from plans. 66 strings.
Bridges made from canary wood. Maple innards with 1/4” bubinga laminate (sides) and solid bubinga front & back. Sitka spruce top made from a 7/4 board 40” long & resawn.

I will eventually make gothic rosettes for the soundholes.

Video of its sound here:

-- "Nothing retains its own form; but Nature, the great renewer, ever makes up forms from other forms. Be sure there’s nothing perishes in the whole universe; it does but vary and renew its form."
