guitar march 006

this is a miguel rodriguez style guitar that I built in 2013. It has a Western cedar top, Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard, ziricote headplate, mahogany neck, and an Indian rosewood bridge. I used some old growth redwood for the braces inside the guitar. The scale is 650 mm. I wanted to build a guitar with more of a radius on the fretboard, so this was the first attempt. I like the radius, and most people who play it seem to like it. It is more dramatic than a traditional classical radius.
