Hi Everyone
Finished my first build last Sept , copy of a Martin 0 , 12 fret 24.9 scale
Engelmann Spruce Soundboard , Appalachian Spruce Bracing , Blackwood Back & Sides , Qld Maple Neck , Ebony Fretboard , Ebony Pyramid Bridge , it’s a bit rough but plays and sounds great so I am hooked . I am now building a copy of a Martin 00VS 12 Fret having some issues with humidity but getting some excellent tips from the forum . Thanks for all the great info it’s very helpful , I will try and download a photo of my first effort .

Have photos on my iPad but couldn’t figure out how to download one , maybe next time

Hi Peter, and welcome. It would be great to see some pics of your instruments. There is a guide to how to post pictures here:

You need to downsize picture files to be able to upload them, but it is not too hard. Good luck with the new project, and feel free to share some pictures or stories as you go.

Nice work Peter. Great first guitar! I'm trying to finish off my first one a 00. Will post a photo when it's done sometime in September. Bernie
