This beautiful all koa Lyn went off to Coda,
Here’s a close up of the back, the wood came directly from our supplier in Hawaii.
The headstock is fitted with Schaller Grand Tune tuners with snakewood buttons.
A Lyn and a Lamorna went up to Mak at Mak’s Guitars in Rathbone Place.
The Lyn‘s walnut and Engelmann, the Lamorna‘s rosewood and Sitka.
Two more Taws for Project:
One rosewood and Sitka and the other walnut and Engelmann.
Andrew has a Lyn he bought some years ago, he couldn’t resist the Lamorna in our shop. He wrote “the guitar sounds wonderful, it’s a superb instrument. As requested here’s the Brook siblings, about 20 years separating them I think!”.
Andy did a fine job again getting John’s damaged Torridge back in working order.
He’s been preparing some custom necks out of maple, walnut and paduak along with some standard ones out of our old stock mahogany
Meanwhile I’m carving necks for this batch, then preparing the guitars for lacquering.
Mark Robinson sent us this photo of the Tamar we made for him nearly twenty years ago. He’s running a songwriting workshop on Zoom on February 17th.
We’re still busy redesigning the website, we’ve been looking through the archives and thought we’d add some models we’d initially made as one-offs to our range,
we hope to have the new site up and running to coincide with the February news update.
Coincidentally while all the plans were around a little Holly came in for a set-up. This one’s the guitar model on the uke body.
