Have you got a closer shot of the headstock? I really like the grain on the back.

Very cool looking guitar. Perhaps it's volume is low due to the resonant properties of the laurel? If so, you may have a dandy instrument to add a pickup to! Impressive work!

Sweet!! Is there just some shadows on the bridge pics in the other post? Those had me thinking you made a 12-string, but this looks like 6 but it's tough to tell without closeups here.
Either way - great work.

Beautiful! A definate inspiration for me! I'm just starting out on my adventure of guitar building and I'm glad I found others here that can help me on my way.

The design was based on looking at all the custom builders models. A lot of them have measurements posted on their websites. I decided to make an OM kind of averaging sizes. I don't recall what the measurements are exactly and I'm not at home to measure it. I used the book guitarmaking tradition and technology by william cumpiano as my dominant reference. Once I started researching luthiere it amazed me how many people out there are building amazing instruments.. Check out erwin somoygin or hoffman guitars

You could use titebond or Elmer's, but I wouldn't. It will be very slightly flexible and have a (minor) impact on tone and sustain.

Looks nice… impressive collection of materials for it too.

would be interesting to see the construction steps of something like this. Is there any good source online to see such a thing?

Thanx.
