Re: Blackwood Spruce Classical

Nice Steve. Great sound and I am looking at your heel profile with envy and thinking I need to make mine sleeker.

Re: Nice bit of Gidgee

Wonderful looking guitar Allen. The wood from Pete is so great that I have to check my bank account balance before I open Instagram these days. I like the cedar gidgee combo and your photos are looking really nice showing both how nice the wood is and your finish. :cl :cl

Re: Maple or Sycamore for purfling

I am sure others will weigh in, but I wouldn't have made a decision on aesthetics and deal with any of the problems that may have arisen from that. A single purfling is going to be very easy to deal with despite the hardness and bending a single strip on a cutaway would be relatively easy. So much s...

Re: B/wood parlour

Nice! How is the armrest attached, magnetised? Also, the endgraft is interesting with the asymmetrical end to the sides and with an ebony inlay. I feel like there is a story there. Anyhoo, very nice instrument :cl :cl

Thanks Steve. Nice demos, as usual.

No glue squeeze-out with your vacuum clamping pictorial?

If you are using it for comparing one guitar to another then you would need careful note of any tweaked setttings
